This gorgeous bird is housed at the Howell Nature Center. A female rough-legged hawk, she came to the center not as an injured animal but as an imprinted one. A woman took her from the nest at an early age and raised her as a pet--a big no-no. Unable at this point to care for herself in the wild, she now lives in the Wild Wonders nature park, and goes to schools and other events to help educate and amaze people of all ages. She will be the subject of one of my next pieces.

We are off to the Bay City State Recreation Area for an overnight camping trip, hoping to catch some of the spring bird migration and wildflowers. Here's to hoping the furnace works in our aged RV!
