I was at the Soil and Water Conservation annual meeting last week and the birds were our entertainment for the evening. Brought to us by Indiana Raptor Center they Educate and Rehabilitate injured birds and orphaned wildlife.  They are a 501-C3 and are always looking for our support.
Our local REMC  has used the raptor center for help with the birds and power lines.    The law doesn't look favorably at the power companies who don't take measures for preventing anything  from happen to these raptors.  
In the process of showing us the birds we got information like one hawk could kill as many as 500 mice in one summer to a farmer that is good news.  The Owls keep watch in the night and the Kestrel and Hawks are day hunters.  The birds in these pictures will not be returned to the wild they are used for education they had  been shot or abandoned fell out of the nest.
The website
There has been talk about the Eagles as they are mating at this time same with Owls
 Hoosier Times Newspaper Sunday Addition in there Outdoor section of the paper has a great article  when the Eagles were brought to Indiana and how they have multiplied in numbers.  Don't for get to read it.  My out of state friends ask me and I will sent you the info.
Enough from me until we talk again
