NY State Fair: The Raptor Project

It's one of my favorite spots to visit at the NY State Fair. The Raptor Project features birds of prey -- hawks, owls, falcons, eagles -- on display inside a large tent. The light tan color of the tent helps to filter the bright sunlight, making it easier to take photos, no bright spots or deep shadows.

The birds have been rehabilitated after suffering serious injuries like a broken wing. They are handicapped, unable to return to the wild, trained to be comfortable around the public. For more info, here's a link to a video and The Raptor Project's website.
