Today, the California Foundation for Birds of Prey held an open house. One of the highlights of the event was the release of a rehabilitated juvenile red-tailed hawk back to the wild. They held a silent auction to determine who had the privilege of actually releasing the bird. The winning bid pledged $135 to the CFBP. I was thrilled to capture the instant of his freedom. He quickly disappeared into the thick woods nearby.
