A final performance

Doris Mager, 93, a raptor advocate and educator known as the "Eagle Lady," laughs while E.T. (Extra Terrific) a 36-year-old great horned owl, unexpectedly covers her head with her wing while at StoneRidge Senior Living Community in Stonington on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019. Mager, a Connecticut native now residing in Kennewick, Wash., has cared for E.T. since she was 4 weeks old, and they and other raptors have toured the country giving presentations. Tuesday was their last presentation together. In April, Mager gave E.T. to the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center.
