Migisi, Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle

As a chick, Migisi fractured her left leg after a fall from her nest tree. Although the fracture was repaired  she was unable to be released to the wild and became a permanent resident at the MRC in September 2007. She is one of our most admired and requested educational ambassadors who brings joy to servicemen, veterans, children and adults at our programs.

It has been an honor to take care of her all these years but we need your support to provide the food, shelter and medical care needed by her and our other birds. Did you know that a large bird such as Migisi eats over half a pound of fish, game and rodents each day and she is not shy about letting us know if she is still hungry? All of your contribution goes to food and care and is fully tax deductible. Besides the satisfaction of helping these beautiful birds, sponsors receive a stunning 8×10 photograph and a certificate of sponsorship. Each year the Center hosts our sponsors at the facility where you can meet your bird up close and personal.

Please consider giving a Raptor Sponsorship to family, friends and co-workers!  It makes a unique and meaningful gift.

Each year, more than 400 animals are brought to the Medina Raptor Center with injuries sustained in the wild or caused by human activities. Most of the animals that come to us are released back into the wild, but some cannot be released due to permanent injuries. These animals become the Raptor Center’s educational program birds and help us teach wildlife conservation and preservation of habitat to a variety of audiences.

The sponsorship program for our educational birds directly supports the significant costs of first aid, on-going medical care and food for both the patients and permanent residents at the center. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, simply download the printable sponsorship form and follow the instructions on the form to select the bird you want to sponsor. Send it to the Center with an enclosed check made out to the Medina Raptor Center. Sponsorship of Migisi (our bald eagle) requires a minimum suggested donation of $200.00. All other birds are suggested $50.00 for each sponsorship except for the cedar waxwings and Ping our Chinese goose which are suggested $25.00.

Our sponsorship donors receive a Certificate of Sponsorship and a photo of the bird they have chosen. In addition, they receive the Medina Raptor Center’s quarterly email newsletter and have the opportunity to visit the Raptor Center on our Annual Sponsorship Day.

Contributions to the Medina Raptor Center Sponsorship Program are tax deductible as allowed by law.

A printable sponsorship form (.pdf) is provided for participation in this worthwhile cause.
