Wings of Wonder is licensed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to admit injured, sick and orphaned raptors. These birds come from a variety of sources: DNR, local veterinary clinic referrals, 911 calls, the National Park Service, and folks who have found injured birds.

Our primary goal is to release healthy and fully conditioned raptors back into the wild. The center currently has 9 area veterinary hospitals providing medical services and resources when needed in the treatment of injured raptors. These resources include radiology, surgery, euthanasia, medications, laboratory tests, orthopedics, etc. Most raptors admitted to Wings of Wonder are seen by a tending veterinarian within 48 hours of their arrival.

All pre and post intensive rehabilitation work is done on site in the Wings of Wonder hospital. As raptor patients become healthier and stronger they are moved outdoors into our conditioning and pre-release flight enclosures. The enclosures vary in size and include the smallest at 8 ft x 10 ft. all the way up to our largest which is 100 ft x 16 ft. Currently Wings of Wonder is one of only three facilities in the state of Michigan with a 100 foot or larger flight training/conditioning enclosure. The aviary is big enough to aerobically condition large bald eagles and turkey vultures prior to their release.

The Iowa Tribe has developed an eagle rehabilitation program in order to protect injured eagles and increase the community awareness of wildlife and Native American culture. The facility was first opened in January 2006 through funds provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services and the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma. The Grey Snow Eagle House operates under several FWS permits. The Religious-Use Permit allows the Tribe to house eagles that are non-releasable due to the nature or severity of their injuries. This permit also allows the Tribe to gather naturally molted feathers and distribute them to Iowa tribal members and in future hopes to other tribes for use in ceremonies and cultural events. They are major players in the Oklahoma Eagle community. They are doing major eagle DNA research in coordination with Oklahoma State University. They have two 100ft cages of which one is a flight and they also have a 150ft Rehab cage that has a 45 degree bend at 100ft.

Once a farm for the Schlitz Brewery draft horses, Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is Milwaukee’s comprehensive nature center. Schlitz Audubon is a designated Important Bird Area because of the habitat provided by the lake for certain waterfowl. We are also a birding hot spot because of our location within a migratory flyway. Featuring live raptors, Schlitz Audubon Nature Center sets the scene for exciting discovery. Our feathered ambassadors can be your hosts in a variety of programs that are dedicated to providing an interactive, educational experience. This facility does not rehab birds, but they accept birds that cannot be released into the wild. These birds become ambassadors for their species and are used for educational purposes.

Helping birds of prey through education, conservation, and rehabilitation. Rehabilitation of injured raptors is an important part of our mission. We have worked with 24 species of injured or sick raptors, brought to us from throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The most common raptors we work with are Great Horned Owls, followed closely by Red-tailed Hawks, Bald Eagles and American Kestrels.
