I've been meaning to write about this for a few weeks now and I am so excited....when we went to the Barnstable County Fair on Cape Cod, one of the main draws (for me, anyway) was the Bird of Prey exhibit advertised online. What I saw there was probably the best selection of birds I've ever seen (is that the right word, selection? I wasn't shopping...) It was so amazing, because when you see these birds up close and personal you are in awe of their grace and power.
It's always great to see them in the wild of course, especially when you're photographing, but it's not often you'll look into a golden eagle's eyes or get to hold a barn owl (during the day!). The birds were all calm, beautiful, and really well cared for, despite their injuries all sustained prior to being taken in by the project. Many of the birds are rescues and/or cannot fly or live in the wild.
their project here and spread the word- this is truly a magnificent show and something you will not soon forget!
