Eagle release was a great success!

~April 1 eagle release at NIWRA~

Over 600 people were onsite to witness the exciting release back to the wild of a rehabilitated bald eagle on Saturday April 1. It was the first public release since before Covid.

Ignoring the big crowd, the eagle was very focused on the sky as he was released.

While the weather was mixed rain, hail and snow prior to the scheduled release time, it luckily cleared up so the eagle release could go ahead. Denise Foster of the French Creek Estuary Nature Preserve had the honour of releasing the eagle, a wounded warrior now ready to go back into the wild.

And we have lift off!
