Raptor Wednesday

Falco peregrinusYou can eyeball the birds at the Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ, pretty closely, albeit through fencing and netting. A Peregrine (Falco peregrinus). Falco sparveriusAmerican Kestrel (Falco sparverius). The animals on display aren’t releasable, but many of the birds bought here for rehabilitation are returned to the wild. Cathartes auraTurkey Vulture (Cathartes aura). The facility, surrounded by Great Swamp NWR, operates on a minimal budget, so you may want to consider donating to their good work.

    Have you read “H Is for Hawk,” the new book by Helen Macdonald? Fantastic read.

      I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my list. (It’s perhaps six books away, although I do get distracted by other books that just show up all the sudden.)
