Day 65—Hawk

Today I attended a Raptor Rescue and Transport class sponsored by the California Foundation for Birds of Prey, an organization started by my parrot’s veterinarian. It was held at the Roseville Bird and Pet Clinic where some of the rescued raptors are being rehabilitated. I was privileged to watch Dr. Joseph interacting with a few of these birds and she allowed me to take some photos while I watched her. This is a red-tailed hawk gulping down a chunk of thawed quail. I don’t know why part of the beak looks green…a reflection?

One thought on “Day 65—Hawk

  1. Very cool action shot! I am trying not to be grossed out- it IS nature! Beautiful focus- especially on the feathers. I really like the owl too!
    Yes, we both did do birds today! I was trying for some shots of the zillions of blackbirds in our tree, but they were too well covered by branches and too high up.
