Erin Koski of Ojai, Calif., poses for a portrait on July 26, 2010 with Popay, a Harris Hawk, one of many birds that Erin cares for.  Erin Koski has been caring for injured birds since she was very young. She now runs an educational program aimed at teaching people about birds and how humans have effected their habitats.  Popay was picked up after receiving an injury to his left wing; he likely struck a power line while diving to catch prey.  Though he was pretty well healed when he was picked up it was obvious that he was going to starve if left in the wild.  (Jeffrey Ball © 2010)
