Fly Free!

This gallery contains 2 photos. A rehabilitated bald eagle is set free by OWL (Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society) staff in Ladner, BC, on a very sunny and hot Sunday, July 27, to the amazement of a full house of bird watchers. Although bald eagles are a common sight in Metro Vancouver, this is the closest I’ve been to one.

And here’s the original uncropped image. OWL is a non-profit society dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of birds of prey like hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls. July 26 and 27 were open house at OWL — only two days of four days of the year when the general public was allowed to go behind the scenes and see birds up close, and see how injured birds are rehabilitated (and in some cases, released).
