I’ve always had a fascination with raptors. I remember the many times my family and I visited the aquarium in Niagara Falls many years ago. One of the highlights was the raptor feedings when one of the trainers would put a mouse or other prey in the hawk’s cage. (I know that probably sounds creepy; it’s a boy-thing, I’m sure!)
Anyway, I learned very recently that just 30 minutes from home is an internationally known migration project called the Braddock Bay Raptor Research. So, one Sunday morning, I grabbed my camera and telephoto lens and headed off to see what I could find.
