We’ve got video!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 26, 2009 by Dawn

Here is the video my friend Adrianne made of my red-tailed hawk release.  I was nervous…can you tell?  I don’t think my public speaking skills are up to par.  However, big kudos to Jodeane (director of the MRP) for being there and helping me out when I needed it (and for giving me this awesome opportunity in the first place).

It’s a bit long – just about 10 minutes – and the best part (the actual release of the bird) happens between 8 and 9 minutes.

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who voted for my blog in the Birdchick’s Birdorable Blog Contest — I won

Please stay tuned for an updated entry on the great horned owl release on May 11, plus a new entry about my very first raptor release which happened on May 16.   I fell a bit behind due to some of my other projects, but I hope to have For the Birds. back up and running.

In the meantime, here is a photo to tide you over…
