802.359.5000 | WILD BIRD REHAB: x510
Remember the pileated woodpecker we took into our care back in December? Well, she bid the VINS staff and members of the public adieu Feb. 29 at the VINS Nature Center in Quechee, VT, taking a beautiful flight back into the wild woods. More than 30 people gathered to watch this crested bird leave our care healthy and strong.
The bird originally came into our care with a fractured wing. The break had fully healed in February, and her last weeks here were spent in a large outdoor enclosure where we could observe her powerful flight.
Keep checking back the blog and the VINS web site, www.vinsweb.org, to learn of future bird releases here at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science.
Very nice. Bon voyage Winnie!
