100’s of people showed up to witness the release of “Harley”, the bald eagle on Saturday and the event received a great deal of good press for both the Raptor Center and the Carpenter Nature Center. Several of us had a beer with Brian after the release and listened to his stories of the rescue and adventure in August.
- KARE 11 ran a 2 minute piece on Saturday 6 o’clock news.
- WCCO TV ran a 2+ minute piece on the work done with Harley up until the release and actually used some of the video I shot during his training exercises.
They also added the article to their website.
- Harley was outfitted with a radio transmitter before his release. The new site is up and running that allows us to track his movements. Check out the new Raptor Center Blog and click on the small Google map to see is travels this 1st weekend of freedom.
- If you have not seen enough of this event, I posted some more footage on Vimeo from Saturday.
Back to work tomorrow getting the next eagle ready for his/her release. We will be flying eagles in Como Park between 9 and 11am most Tuesdays and Thursdays.
