O.k. so I am mining the kids section again, I promise the adult books are coming, smile. But this one I found pretty neat at least reading it through I did. So for validating and reading pleasure under the .rtf section of the website. Raptor Rescue! An Eagle Flies Free By Silvia A. Johnson From the book Jacket: A conservation officer discovers a wounded bald eagle, lying in a ditch by the side of the road. The bird has been shot in the left wing. Unable to fly after food, it is close to death. But the officer knows just what to do. Within a few hours, a new patient is undergoing emergency surgery at the world-renowned Gabbert Raptor Center, located at the University of Minnesota. Here is an unusual behind-the-scenes exploration of a rehabilitation center for injured birds of prey. Crisp, arresting photos and an engaging text follow the story of a raptor's recovery-from admission, X ray, and surgery through recuperation, flight therapy, and release. Young nature lovers will enjoy this fascinating introduction to the work of the center's veterinary and volunteer staff and to the raptors themselves-among the most beautiful, remarkable, and, in some cases, threatened of wild creatures.
