Raptors in Richmond

Maymont has several animal exhibits but the only one we viewed was the raptor zoo. These birds were rescues, native birds of Virginia which had been injured and brought here where they could heal in safety.

Since they were behind two fences, I couldn't get any natural-looking photos, but at least we got a good look at several very handsome birds.

As for the picture below, well, I asked Frank to stand next to the eagle statue. Let's blame his pose on the heat.
