She is flying high now

Back in July I received a beautiful adult female Red-tailed Hawk named PHOENIX. She has that name as she had survived being badly burned and has risen from the ashes. The left primary wing feathers and tail feathers were about gone leaving only shafts. Her chest and right wing feathers were singed and she had a burn wound to the inside of her right foot.

She is now in the flight barn with all feathers replaced but one on her right wing. She will soon be heading back to the Sheridan area for release as she may have a mate waiting for her. She's a very large female weighing in at almost four pounds. Thanks to Sheridan game warden, Bruce Scigliano, for caring enough to rescue her and meet me in Burgess Junction for the hand off.
