A male eagle is seen in its flight enclosure at the Delaware Valley Raptor Center just before being taken to a release site.

This is a close-up of a broad-winged hawk perched on a telephone line near my home during mid-August. This species breeds in our region, and many have been seen or heard during the summer months.
