David posed with Missi, a kite we adopted for educational purposes, for she is blind in one eye and therefore cannot live in the wild.
Here is David with the Red-tailed Hawk. He doesn't know that he will release her after I have finished taking pictures of him holding her. BirdManBob said later that David's eyes grew wide when he learned he would release the hawk.
The Red-tailed Hawk dipped in altitude upon release, then took off free and healthy.
Thank you, David!
