Golden Eagle and other raptors

We went to a talk about raptors at a nearby nature reserve. These are injured birds (someone shot the Golden Eagle; the Barred Owl --not shown-- lost a wing in a road accident) now recovered as far as possible and living in captivity. Something good out of a tragedy is the education of all of us about supporting raptors even in our back yards.

What a coincidence! I went to a talk about owls at the local Audubon Society a month ago with three live owls, at least one was injured by a motor vehicle. We have red tailed hawks in the park next to us and have witnessed them devouring squirrels that they catch.
