Author Al Parker discusses his book A Hope for Wings & relates stories of relationships to eagles, hawks, and owls from the perspective of a field biologist, falconer, and student of raptor behavior.

About the Author

The author spent most of his professional life releasing and monitoring bald eagles, peregrine falcons, barn owls, and osprey in the Ohio Valley states. This story of their recovery is personalized by his intimate relationships to these awe-inspiring birds. Their individual natures, as well as their biological and behavioral characteristics, are revealed in stories of incidents that occurred during the years of hacking and follow-up investigation.

The book is also a clarion call for bringing the conservation movement back to the importance of relationships.  In our fight against irreverence and disrespect for wildlife, we often forget one of those heart weapons – hope. Conservation needs hope for wholeness. In these tales, may you find your own wings for that hope.
