(Above) A hawk shreaks at the Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Hutchins on Monday, February 21, 2005. Since the Heard Nature Center closed its raptor center last year, the nonprofit wildlife rescue organization has become the only area refuse for injured and sick wild birds. As such, the financial strain has increased as the number and diversity of birds has increased.
