Back to mom

This was an exciting day, two bird releases took place. The first was little JAKE, the young short-eared owl found caught in a barbwire fence off the Greybull hiway. Because of her age I opted to take her back to where she was found. As you can see, she blends in well with the surroundings. I also left three mice but after I got back to my truck I noticed she'd climbed to the top of the rock formation so didn't partake of lunch at that moment. Hopefully she'll go back and have a meal. I did give her a large mouse early this morning so she left with a full tummy.

The second release was my young horned lark. I took it not far from my place in perfect lark habitat. It flew off and just kept going. I didn't get a photo of that, happened too quick.

  1. WOW! I haven't checked in for a while, and as usual you have so much going on. I am quite fascinated by your progress with Tumbler, from your interesting mask, to the golden eagle photo (t-shirt I think) to the mirror in front of him. Hopefully he will identify himself as an eagle, and not a human, and will hunt successfully in your flight barn.
