I found this amazing book at the library:

Arrowhawk by Lola M. Schaefer

It is based on the true story of a hawk that was struck with an arrow, rescued, treated, and released back into the wild. The pictures, by illustrator Gabi Swiatkowska, are simply beautiful!! And, there is a picture and story of the real hawk at the end of the book.

After reading Lissa's blog about hawks here, I wondered if she might already have this book!

Have a beautiful and fun day!

Thanks for the tip, Erica! We love learning about hawks and other birds of prey. (My 6yo especially loves turkey vultures, if you can believe it! )

A fun thing to do with the kids is Adopt-a-Raptor from the Vermont Institute of Natural Science .
