Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the Dale Valley Vineyard celebrating the 15th anniversary of SOAR, (Saving Our Avian Resources), an Iowa-based, non-profit organization "dedicated to saving our avian resources through raptor rehabilitation, education, and research". In addition to lots of good food, activities and music they had two "education" birds - a Red-tailed hawk and "Thora" their resident almost blind Bald Eagle. They also released into the wild, two rehabilitated American Kestrels and two Red-tailed Hawks.I got some nice photos of the birds including one of the Red-tails sitting in a nearby tree after it had been released. Kay, Linette, Terrie and others put on a great event with musical ambiance provided by Charlie Nixon.
More about SOAR on their Facebook page or at their web site.
