Rehabbed Richmond Falcon Released

The young Richmond falcon that had been rehabbing with Tri-County rehabilitation (band 49-Z) has been released. Although the bird had recovered nicely it still seemed to favor its right wing.

She was placed with a Falconer, a technique that allowed her to self-regulate the amount of exercise she was capable of. In essence the bird was able to determine when it was ready for release. On Wednesday Feb 27th, She did just that, taking off for an exercise flight and not returning. Our thanks to Tri-county for a great job
