Enraptured by Raptors is a book inspired by a family of Red-shouldered hawks who find their way into the hearts of an urban community in the midst of uncertain times. Weeks into the initial throes of a world pandemic, nation-wide protests, and a contentious political election, a raptor nest is built by unwary hawks in a sycamore tree adjacent to a bustling Washington, DC bridge. Passing city buses and incessant foot traffic does little to deter the hawk family from its instinctual routine. People from all walks of life, and near and far neighborhoods, stop to visit the bridge and nest, watching wildlife unfold in all its splendor. But more is revealed than just the hatchlings. Nature is a panacea for what ails us, and brings us closer to the core of our own existence. People of all ages will enjoy and relate to this heart-warming story of nature and nurture as shared in the photographs and field notes of Jennifer Packard.
