I don't think I've posted any photographs since my Red-tailed hawk died in December. She was eighteen and a half years old and we were together for over 16 years. We had a relationship that was very special, so I have been very sad; I just sort of shut down for a while. I had her mounted so she is atill able to teach, but it took me a while to get used to her having her molecules rearranged. I can still kiss her on the beak and put my arms around her every day like I did every day of her life with me. Here is Momma giving her the once over after I first brought Mina home from the taxidermist.

    Gosh, how very painful for you, it takes time to work through it but it is never something you completely get over after being together for that length of time. I bet you had mixed feelings bringing her back home from the taxidermist. Sending you warm wishes.
