Another good release

Today I set CARNEY loose to begin the rest of her life. This beautiful adult female Sharp-Shinned Hawk came up from Lander after apparently hitting a window in the town. She had a broken left wing but it was in good position so no surgery was needed.

These photos show her sitting on the highest perch in her flight area and right after release on the roof of my north room addition. I blinked my eye and missed her next takeoff so don't know which direction she headed. Hopefully it was towards a long and fruitful life.
