We're entering into our busiest time of the year and it kicked off with a little bit of madness in March. We resumed all flight training for rehabilitating birds now that the weather is warmer and the snow is gone. Birds that overwintered in our clinic are being released or are getting prepped to return home. And we welcomed our first babies of the year!
Entering our busy season also means more raptor releases! This month we released 26 birds back to the wild. That total includes:
- 5 bald eagles
- 10 barred owls
- 7 great horned owls
- 5 northern saw-whet owls
Moving forward we'll have even more birds and many more releases each month, which we'll continue to share with you. We put together a slideshow of a few of the birds released in March, all of which are now back out in the wild!
