I got the distinct honour of going with the crew of Hope For Wildlife (www.hopeforwildlife.net) on a release. When they have a rehabilitated animal, they make a big deal about releasing them.
It was a really good time. and the Bald Eagle they released was super cool looking and flew very well. Here’s the video I got with my phone.
Very cool. He didn’t want to get out of the box at first, but once he did, he was off!
If you ever get a chance to go to a release, do it. Such a good feeling to know that the animal that was brought in hurt (in this case shot) can make a full recovery and get back out into the wild. Makes me think I have a chance at getting out there, myself!
