During the month of November 2010, the Wildlife Center of Virginia admitted 69 patients.  This gradual decrease in admissions (compared to 101 in October) is a sure sign of the change in seasons.  A total of 25 of the patients admitted were raptors; many of these animals were suspected hit-by-vehicle cases or were injured by striking a window.
