Raptor Rehabilitation Project volunteer coordinator Amber Edwards, left, Brenna Barger, second-year veterinary student, and Laura Raiff, third-year veterinary student, cover Watson at Raptor Rehabilitation Project before they take her out of the flying cage to Edwards' car to transport her to Macon Sunday morning. The birds, who are brought to the project, are given names for medical purposes in the hospital. Watson was named after Dr. Watson, a character from the Sherlock Holmes stories.
