IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE!
There's nothing like walking in the door of the gym and staring into the face of a live Swainson's hawk to get ones attention. On the stage behind the hawk were three large pet carriers which had their doors 'blacked' out with tape. The gal giving the program later explained the birds were calmer in the dark so they made a habit of traveling with them that way.
Beautiful Article, Beautiful Birds. Wonderful that there are Centers of Vetenarian Medicine which help heal the wounded creatures of our forest floor, and the wouded birds of our skies.
Minnesota Raptor Center, located on the St. Paul Campus of the Uniniversity of Minnesota, is just one of many State groups that help to return hurt raptors to their native enviorment.
God Bless those who help in trying heal all of "God's Wounded Creatures, Great and Small!

Thanks for the article, and I agree with Parn! Beautiful. http://www.raptorcenter.org/Michigan-raptor-center.asp is a list of the Michigan centers for Raptor recovery as well as a compendium of other states' centers.
