There is an amazing place in the community of Delta, BC called O.W.L. - Orphaned Wildlife Rehablitiation Society. They are a non-profit organization, whose volunteers are dedicated to public education and the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned birds. I have been lucky to view the release of not only bald eagles, but other birds of prey.
As some of you know, the avian flu is on the rise and more diligence is being taken to avoid further outbreak in our province. The staff at O.W.L. in particular, are taking every step possible to protect their birds of prey to make sure none get infected with the avian flu. One of these steps, was to close its doors to the public. This means no public tours, no school field trips, and no main source of income. Their funds are now nearly depleated and they need our help.

Below are some photos I took there during my last visit, and to help raise funds, I am offering 5x7 size prints for $5.00* each. 100% of those proceeds raised will go directly to O.W.L. Rehabilitation Society. If you would like to help and purchase a print, please contact me.
And when they lift the public closure, please do go and check them out. Meet some of my winged friends like Snoopy, Nelson, Daddy, Sara, and many more!
