Naming NotesWell this is an easy answer. I have been involved with a bird of prey rehabilitation center since my freshman year of high school and as inside joke me and my friends began calling our group the Bird Nerds. And my passion for being a bird of prey rehabber is what is driving me to get my wild biology degree. So it was a no brainer
