Saturday at the Raptor Center

Ryan and I spent part of the day at the Raptor Center (at the U of M).  We sat through the presentation so we could see some of the raptors up close and personal.  In the case of their snacks, maybe a little too close.  They feed the birds bits of rat so that was a little…   eeewww. 

Anyway, here’s one of the Bald Eagles they have in residence.  His name is Leuc, and he has a permanent injury to his wing and cannot be released back into the wild.
