Raptors 3

The Ohio Bird Sanctuary takes care of birds that cannot make it on their own in the wild anymore.  Some have been injured or where kept as pets.  This red tailed hawk was hit by a car and that is how it came to be at the sanctuary.  It is now blind in one eye and it’s right wing is a bit wonky but it can fly still.

      Thanks. It was a very cool shoot but I still love the little hoot the most. Happy Weekend to you too!

    That’s a lovely red tailed hawk. We have places out here that help injured birds and keep them if they won’t make it in the wild. The birds do pretty well if they get lots of care and attention.

      This place does an amazing job of it. I need to get out there one day when they have open visiting.

    Great shot! I hope the bird will get fully recovered!
    Did you use tripod for these images? They look very sharp!

      They are as well as they are ever going to get and will live out the rest of their days at the center. I shot all of the raptors hand held…thank you 🙂

    Wonderfully captured, loved seeing your series of photos of these beauties! The details are amazing and you really get to study them up close in sanctuaries like this one.

      Thanks. Their eyes and their feathers were what pulled me in…so amazingly beautiful and functional.

    He’s still beautiful. That bottom picture of his profile looks like he is posing for you. Lovely picture.

      At times I wondered what they were thinking with all of us creatures snapping away at them. Thanks.

    This was quite a trio, Teri. Thank you for sharing.
    On my way home from Michigan, I once saw a hawk of some sort drop out the sky into a flock of pigeons feeding in the wide grassy area separating the 2 sides of the freeway. He dove, they scattered, and he was on the ground with one of the birds in his talons. It all happened so fast and closer to the speeding cars than one would think. Having witnessed that, I can see how easily a bird can get hit by a car. I also got to feel what it must be like to be Sir David Attenborough, even if but for a few seconds. 🙂
