Peregrine Released

Friends, this tundra peregrine was migrating through Duluth Minnesota, floating on the thermals above  Hawk Ridge when she saw what appeared like a wounded bird.  She swooped down and got caught in a net.  People rushed out to free her from the net and put a band on her leg, measured her and sent her to an educator/naturalist who stood in front of other people and told them about the peregrine falcon natural history.  Someone from the crowd then adopted this bird and was allowed to set her free to continue on her migratory journey.  This is what happens on Hawk Ridge in the fall.  til Tomorrow MJ
