I went to a raptor recovery facility in my town recently. The facility takes in wounded birds and restores them to health and if they can, releases them back to their natural environment. I went into small aviaries with hawks, owls, magpies and other varieties I canít remember. I watched as a healed hawk was released back to the wild. I sat with a golden eagle. She was perched on a small log, her right leg tethered to the ground. A picture of us together captured us both looking out at the coming sunset in prayer. It is most remarkable.
