I'm fascinated with all the webcams that are available online which capture the Peregrine Falcons returning to their former nests each spring, and hatching new offspring. The cams are fascinating and time wasters each day for me at work. It's fun to watch several cams right here in New England, and see the little ones hatch, mature and fly the coop just 6+ weeks later.
Recently, I had the opportunity to meet a lovely woman from Massachusetts who, with her partner, takes in wounded birds of prey. She had with her several of the birds that she has been trying to rehabilitate for some time.
I was able to take a few pictures with my iPhone which came out really well after I cropped them. Shown below are a red-tail hawk, great horned owl, Peregrine falcon, barn owl and a saw-whet owl, . These birds will never be able to be released for one reason or another. Aren't they amazing?
