They're all very fine shots, but the golden eagle is my favorite.

Too many outstanding pictures, I can't make up my mind on any favorite. I was surprised to see the albino python - not exactly a native species. The birds are all wonderful.

Thanks mtnman, that particular female golden eagle I was told is about 40 years old and just this past year mated successfully with her companion who is about 20 years old. Sad thing however, due to regulations with NYS if they breed again in the future Hawk Creek has to destroy the eggs.

Thanks mtngal. As a wildlife rehab center, Hawk Creek takes in injured wildlife or wildlife that folks no longer can care for. It's better than folks releasing them into the wild like they do in Florida where they have a big Burmese Python problem in the Everglades. The Turkey Vulture is a permanent resident even though it's perfectly healthy due to being raised by humans and having imprinted on them. A lot of the animals are transported around for educational shows. It cost me $50 to attend their wild photo day but I find they are worthy place to spend my money and have an opportunity to see these beautiful creatures I may never see in the wild.

Fantastic shots, the Ocelot and the first Eagle are wonderful.
