In the words of Mr. Spock, I bid Wynken and Nod
Live Long and Prosper!
Together with some students attending a Raptor Rehab class from Wake Tech, I witnessed Wynk and Nod returning back to Mother Nature after being successfully rehabilitated by Steve Stone of the American Wildlife Refuge. http://www.raleighraptorrefuge.org http://www.awrefuge.org
First it was Wynk.
Then it was Nod’s turn.
I had the honor 🙂
Thank you Steve for rehabbing these 2 Red-tails! BTW, Nod is a “she” and Wynk is “he”. I guess our guess was right!
After the release, Steve continued on with the class and showed some of the other Raptors in his care. All these other raptors have been injured and are incapable of surviving in the wild.
Hiss – the Great Horned Owl
Adonis, the Barn Owl
Eastern Screech Owl. (yes, that is a cataract in one of the eyes)
Snoopy, the Black Vulture
Freya, The Red-tailed Hawk
Expenses incurred for Steve’s work relies largely on donations.
