Raptor Release: 4 The Bald Eagle

Three birds were released the morning session.  Another three were released in the afternoon.  But, people really wanted to see the bald eagle. 

He had been hit by a car, suffered a broken wing, and had been nursed back to health.   

It was pretty amazing to see him take flight.  He basically starts from zero...with just a toss.

He needs to pick up speed quickly to gain altitude.  And, once in the air, he can go where he wants.

I was fortunate that he turned in a semi-circle back towards me.  

Then, he was on his way.
