On Saturday, Sept 24th, the Raptor Center and Carpenter Nature Center partnered for a spectacular day of fall colors and raptor releases. We released 6 birds, including 2 Red-tailed Hawks, a Broad-winged Hawk, a Coopers hawk and 2 young Bald Eagles.
The final bird of the day was released by Sunny, daughter of Vivian Neiger. Vivian was the volunteer coordinator for the Raptor Center and lost her 2 year battle with cancer this past summer. All of the releases were spectacular, but the final bird left the crowd teary eyed.
