Tree Climbing

Jun 3, 2010 | Raptor Center

Today I met Jim.  Jim is a tree trimming, tree climber who has volunteered for the Raptor Center since 1988.  After work, Jim puts baby raptors back into their nests when they have fallen out.  After climbing 40 feet up into a mature oak tree, Jim made sure that the nest was secure and checked on the condition of the other 2 siblings.  We then hoisted our baby red-shouldered back up to his nest.  The event ended with a quick fly-by and landing by one of the parents (we assume mother) for a quick head count.  A very successful rescue and release.
