Photographer Jennifer Packard's new book shows a birds-eye view of nature and nurture through the lens of compassion and humanity.  

the book

Enraptured by Raptors is a book inspired by a Red-shouldered hawk family that finds their way into the hearts of an urban community in the midst of uncertain times. 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 existence.

reviews

In our disrupted times, the neighborhood hawk family reminds us that life goes on — and that we’re all in this together.

AMY HENDERSON

Smithsonian Historian Emerita

With emotion and intimacy, Jennifer Packard's Enraptured by Raptors gives not only a snapshot in time of birds​ in the wild, but a deeply personal and resonant account of the lives of a very different but kindred species.

Packard weaves her and others’ experiences using photos, interviews and  thoughtfully-penned field notes, into an endearing, informative read.
