Recovering from injury and gaining back muscle strength is hard work! To give these ready-to-go birds their best chance, releases happen when the seasonal temps are moderate and no storms are in the near forecast.

With relatively “good” March weather the last week, several ready patients have been released! Those include an adult Cooper’s hawk, a three-year-old bald eagle (Clarke County admitted 10/12/21), and two HY21 bald eagles were soft released (Buena Vista admitted 11/1/21 and Brayton admitted 2/6/22).
