Sky Watch Friday: Raptor Release

Following up from yesterday's B-Earthday post here is a picture of me releasing a sharp-shinned hawk that I adopted up at Hawk Ridge last October.

It is difficult to let your children go, but such a delight to see them take flight and set out on their own life again. Well done.

Chris said...

Somptuous and really nice to be able to do that. Thanks for sharing this experience.

Wow, this is an awesome shot! It seems like you're touching the sky.

Wish I have the skill to do that too.

What a beautiful bird and how nice that he's now healthy. This is an amazing shot...so expressive.

Bim said...

A perfect capture of the moment - you look a bit as if you would like to take off too.

I am sure the hawk you released will be back, from time to time, and have a look around to see you. Nice post.

Amy said...

Great shot! And good for you for the adoption. I always love a bird success story!

You released him after taking care of him? Or he will come back to you after. Will that be able to happen? Apology for too many questions from me...c",)
