Save-the-World Saturday: High Flying Adored
Unfortunately, as is often the case, the expansion of "civilization" continues to impede upon the habitat of our feathered friends. Many are hit by cars or suffer other injuries as a result of encounters with man.
Sometimes kind souls find these injured birds and bring them to the Birds of Prey Foundation in Broomfield, Colorado where they are cared for, and, as often as possible, reintroduced to the wild.
I was fortunate enough to see a fully-recuperated golden eagle released into the wild near Keystone a few years back. It is not something I will soon forget.
Birds of Prey is a nonprofit, and relies upon donations, memberships, and patronage at the Birds of Prey Thrift Shoppe to continue their good and kind work. Check them out.
