Hawkeye

Close up of a red tailed hawk I took yesterday during a private photo shoot at the Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ. The Raptor Trust is a bird rehabilitation center who has thus far released over 60,000 birds back into the wild. Pepe here, is one of the educational birds they use to teach children about raptors. She was hit by a car in 2006 and brought to the center to see what they could do for her. Unfortunately, one of her wings is permanently disabled. So here she stays.
