While we’re on the topic of gifts, I wanted to share this wonderful organization that was recently brought to my attention. The Owl Moon Raptor Center is a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center located in Maryland that specializes in returning injured birds of prey back in to the wild. The founder Suzanne Shoemaker runs a wonderful blog of the same name featuring amazing photography and write ups on some of the ‘patients’ that are currently under her care. In an effort to drum up some support, they have compiled some amazing images into a 2012 calendar which features some beautiful owls and falcons for your monthly enjoyment. While supplies last, If you go to their site and make a donation of $25 or more they will ship you a 2012 Owl Moon Raptor Center calendar and 100% of the proceeds go to support the rescued birds. How is that not a good deal?!
I encourage you to visit their site at the link below and read about all the good being done in Maryland and help support a wonderful organization. To donate and receive the free 2012 calendar, click here.
