Administering aid to Raptors

My friend Christian a fellow photographer invited me to
accompany him to Uqrop. To deliver a captured Red Tail
Hawk. Uqrop is an Org that rescues and administers
medical aide to predatory birds.
Once healthy they are released into a safer environment.
This was an exciting learning experience.

The Hawk lost 2 Talons. The Dr cleaned the wound, removing hair, dirt
and the injured area around where the Talon used to be. Fortunately
Talons grow back.

Thank you Steve for sharing these wonderfully detailed and close up images of the raptor being treated with the eventual plan to return the bird to the wild. Even as fearsome a creature as this Red Tail Hawk may be there are times when intervention really works to extend that life.

It always amazes me as there are many cases where injured birds and animals sense when they are being helped and don't put up a struggle. That trust must be
very rewarding. Those are great photos, thanks for sharing.

Nice to see the detail of my recent 2 neighbors and these at the hands of better health.

Great series! Poor thing must have been traumatized.

I don't think so Paul, through most of the procedure the hawks eyes
were covered, and it did calm down, I noticed the breathing of the
bird slowed down considerably after a few minutes.
Thanks to all for your comments.

I did not realize they had barbs on their tongues just like I do.
And the Quebec Union for the Rehabilitation of photographers, did not
check you out Steve, while you were there ? :-)

No Greg, I kept my mouth closed and let my camera do the talking.
(Sounds so corny) Dr. surprised me by not even asking how I lost my
Talon. They almost always do. If you have barbs on your tongue Greg,
you might want to see about that my friend. ( laughing emoji placed
