802.359.5000 | WILD BIRD REHAB: x510
April 11 was a big day for the red-tailed hawk that VINS Wildlife Services had in rehabilitation since November 2008. This hawk made a triumphant recovery over the span of nearly 5 months at VINS, and he was released back into the woods of Vermont this past Saturday.
Great job on the rehabilitation and release! Was this bird also banded before release?
Thank you! Yes, this hawk was banded by ornithologist Al Hinde the day before release. Keep posted for a future blog entry about banding wild birds!
