The eBook is a 70-page, full-color book about a family of hawks who have battled long odds to nest in Allendale for more than a decade.
The download costs $2.99, with all our proceeds going to benefit The Raptor Trust, one of the nation’s leading avian rehabilitation centers.
The Raptor Trust saved the life of a Red-shouldered hawk named Laura, the main protagonist of the book, who had been found dazed on an Allendale lawn four years ago.
The beautifully illustrated book includes a chapter on the Red-shoulders’ courtship flight, a first-person account of what it’s like to host a red-shoulder nest, and a reprinted chapter on red-shoulders from the classic 1898 book “Birds that Hunt and Birds that Are Hunted.”
