Here is a picture of the Rough-legged hawk that was released Oct 18. The bird had been in the care of the Raptor Center since last December with a broken leg. These hawks summer in Alaska and winter here in the valley. The timing of the release was both upon a fully-healed bird, as well as the fact that these birds are now appearing in the valley.While the bird was not a “native to Shadow Hills,” she is a welcome addition to birds and wildlife found here, and a testament to the trust the local Raptor Center has in our commitment.
