15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Raptor rescued

This young raptor found it's way to me, as many others have. I arrived home to find him setting on the railing of one of our flatbed trailers. The ice storm prohibited the Raptor Rescue to pick him up for a couple of weeks so we bonded. I've never handled such a mannered raptor.
