Photos: A look at how raptors keep us safe at YVR

Golly, a Harris' Hawk, looks over the airfield at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond, B.C., on Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015. The raptor program uses predatory birds to scare off other birds from nesting and flying around the airport helping to keep both incoming and outgoing planes safe from collisions.
