Wanted to add a few pics before I move on down the road...

An old friend...

At the end of the day, we were invited to observe the release of two patients...

...a pretty little Kestrel...

Image

Image

...and a beautiful Red Tailed Hawk...

Sorry about the picture quality...working on this tiny laptop screen isn't the ideal :lol: . I'll fix'em later, and add some more.

Of course, a big, hearty THANK YOU to Ed Clark, Dr. Dave McRuer, and the rest of the Wildlife Center staff for hosting this incredible event...and for all you do EVERY DAY for Virginia's wildlife!

Awesome photos Henry. Looks like that tiny little screen didn't hold you back too much if at all. Beautiful photos of the kestrel and what a gorgeous face he/she has. I love the shots of the red tail...what beautiful birds they are.

Great pics Henry. You really have captured Buddy's beautiful coloring. And I love your pics of the Kestrel. What a pretty bird! The red-tailed hawk that was released looks so regal in your pics. And those are great pics of Buddy's neighbors. Way to go!
