Raptors and their Talons

Raptors and their Talons are the subjects of a blog post on the DC Birding Blog called “How Raptor Talons Fit Their Prey

This post, which is quite excellent and that I highly recommend, on the November Plos Blog Post of the Month Award. We hope blog post author John Beetham will enjoy his trip around the world for two, his new Z sports car, and his life time supply of groceries. Or whatever they are giving out these days for this highly prestigious award.
