Almost home

Me holding a beautiful (injured) female juvenile Red-Tailed Hawk (B. jamaicensis)

I’ve finished up my internship with the Georgia DNR at Amicalola Falls and am back at my parents for a few days before I move back to Atlanta this weekend. As much as I loved working with the park – especially our wonderful birds of prey – and as much as I loved my little cabin in the woods, I can’t wait to get back to the city. I’ve learned so much from the good people of Amicalola this Summer, and gotten so much first hand experience with Raptors that I’m sure taking my falconry permit test will be no problem. This post is not so much a reflection or farewell as it is just to publically thank the wonderful staff at Amicalola and encourage anyone near the Dawson Georgia area (A short ride down GA400 from Atlanta) to see this beautiful park and all of its wonderful critters!
