This is not the release party WE wanted, but on the sunny side, many folks from outside Iowa tuned in for the live broadcast. Thank you one and all.
While it was a feel-good to have you watch as seven raptors were released to fly the skies once again, WE missed the interactions with the live audience. The “aha moments,” the wide eyes during the release, the questions, and the stories were all missed.
Released at a not-yet-named Story County Conservation wildlife area on 30 August 2020 were one hatch-year 2020 red-tailed hawk, two hatch-year 2020 screech owls, two hatch-year 2020 kestrels, and one adult and one hatch-year 2020 barred owls.
Thanks so much to Story County Conservation for once again helping to make our release party a success!
