Wind Over Wings

Wind Over Wings, Inc. is a nonprofit, wildlife rehabilitation and education center. Our goal in education is to provide a personal connection with wildlife that will lead to responsible stewardship of the environment. Our goal in rehabilitation is to release wildlife back to their natural environment when viable.

Their Mission Statement,from:

Wind Over Wings became incorporated as a nonprofit in 1990. With the approval of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Connecticut's Department of Environmental Protection, our rehabilitation and educational services flourished. We specialize in the rehabilitation of raptors, particularly eagles. We provide approximately 330 environmental education programs annually speaking with over 100,000 people not including television audiences. We believe that when adults and children make a connection with wildlife, intentional cruelty will lessen

Tech Notes: Most shot with 20D and 70-200 2.8L IS. Only a couple shots in the gallery have been cropped; have left the handlers arm/hand to show how big and small these magnificent birds are.
Each bird has a link to his/her history.
