Red Shoulder Spotted and Doing Well

The RED SHOULDERED HAWK that was rescued in January and released last month has recently been spotted by an Annapolis resident.Russ Mader (CLICK on his name to view his website. He has some GREAT photos!) thankfully got this great photo of a RED SHOULDERED HAWK with a silver band on it's left leg. He recently posted his raptor sightings on the MDOSPREY listserv. He mentioned in his post that he had managed to snap a few photos. Since he lived right here in Annapolis, I decided to send him an email. I thought perhaps he could keep an eye out for our released red raptor. As it turns out, Russ lives less than a mile from where the bird was rescued. Coincidence?

I think this is a fantastic way to end the weekend. Here is a photo of the bird just before it's release at Greenbury Point. I do love success.Happy St. Patrick's Day. See you at the Ram's Head Tavern on West Street tomorrow from 2 to 4 PM for some irish shenanigans! Josh and I will be playing music in the tent out back!
