|Around noon the cold air and winds blew in.|
With it came over 250+ hawks
but the main attractions was the Red-shouldered Hawks
|Adult Red-Shouldered hawk|
|Juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk|
|Very cool to see the different angles of flight|
|He was alert and seemed ok|
|but we noticed he had one eye closed.|
I called Rescue and was told if the owl was in the same tree tomorrow
or on the ground to call tomorrow. As we spoke the owl took off
in flight. Beautiful.
|He landed somewhere in the tree .|
|Janice and I watched him with all the neighbours for the next two hours.|
Everyone was enjoying this amazing bird. Also everyone was respecting his space.
|The crows were bugging him but most of the time he was sleeping in the tree|
|How beautiful is this.|

|You don't get many days like this where you have a nice sunny day, amazing |
birds, owls and hawks, and an owl release to finish off the day.
|At LaSalle Beach when a beautiful Black Crowned Night Heron landed in the tree by me|
|A Merlin hunting|
|A beautiful Red Morph Eastern Screech Owl sunbathing|
|A glint in his eye|
|Nearby a Sharp Shinned Hawk was also hunting|
|After the owl release we saw Wood Ducks in the pond|
A stunning female, male and young ones.
|Today was very special to be able to release a 1st year |
EasternScreech Owl - female -gray morph
on behalf of The Owl Foundation
|She had some great attitude and the release went perfect|
Thank you The Owl Foundation for again helping the owls. The Eastern Screech Owl fell out of the tree and had head trauma. She taught us that with proper treatment she was ready to go in the wild again. Support your local wildlife organizations and make sure you have their phone number on your speed dial.

|She flew fast and did a turn, a dip and then almost to the top of the tree. |
