This book is not intended to be a complete reference for avian practice or for the rehabilitation of birds of prey. Instead, it has been written by a practicing veterinarian as a helpful and concise, day-to-day, clinical handbook. The intended audience is anyone new to raptor rehabilitation as well as the seasoned veterinarian, technician, or rehabilitator who needs a refresher or a quick reference.
There are many great references listed in this book. I used many of them extensively when researching this book and I continue to use them regularly in my practice.
