Fun With Raptors - falconxr's photos

Post by alethe » Wed Aug 09, 2017 10:27 am

So I've decided just to post some of the raptor photos I get to take every so often here. I might stick falconry photos here, but frankly I think I might leave all my falconry photos for a different thread in another forum I will be making.

So, for now, all the birds handled here are from the center I volunteer at. They are for educational outreach, not pets, and each bird has something physically or mentally wrong with it that prevents their release into the wild.

Until I get new photos I will be updating this with older ones I like once a week. Enjoy! Feel free to ask questions about any of the birds here.
