Thanks to Cynthia and John Kendrick I have a photo of DIRTY HARRY flying away over Dome Lake. This was an amazing release and I'm glad to have this record of the event. Harry can be seen to the left of the large tree in the center of the photo. I didn't crop it down as I wanted everyone to see what an awesome place this bird lives in. There are two large lakes there and since his release there have been sightings of bald eagles. Hopefully one of them was good old HARRY.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
