Nice picture


Isn't this just a great picture? The eagle was rehabbed by this person and used in educational lectures. There is quite a story that goes with this beautiful relationship concerning cancer and how the bird returned the favor by helping in the man"s "rehab" as he went through his treatment. The bond is very apparent.

Wow, that's amazing and touching! Most of the birds of prey I've ever met didn't really care for human companionship (except for some of the owls.)
