He's on his own now

After a long time, difficult surgery, and learning how to use his foot again, the time came today for HIGGINS to fly free. I took him down to a large ranch south of Meeteetse for the momentous occasion. He didn't want to leave the crate but when he came out and sat on the bank above the creek he rethought the situation.

His strong flight ended up on one of the ancient corral poles so he could just look around and enjoy freedom at last. He proved he was strong enough to make live kills so there was no reason for him to stay here any longer. HIGGINS was an amazing bird while here and I know he'll do well out where he belongs.
