Re-Release of Hawk an extension of Audubon Commitment

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.

New Bird Houses add to our Audubon Options for Nesting Friends with New Owl Family

Shadow Hills CC added to the list of “affordable housing for our feathered friends” this past month, by adding a couple of new bird houses on the perimeter of the course. Some stalwart, hearty members and staff braved the cold to get the job done.

The new structures are found adjacent to holes # 1,3,4,5,9 tee,13, & 14.  We wish the new tenants “happy nesting” and offer special thanks to those who were involved! In the pictures below, you will find Jake Witherspoon. Deb and Wayne Elliott. Pat Williams. Susie Leo. Carolyn Townsend, and Betsy Ovitt.

Birds expected any day…
