I just found this video.. wonderful... thank you Nancy for posting it.  :eclove I much prefer to see the eaglets allowed to walk out of the box and make their own way into the air than have them flung into the air.

Yes, Laurad!  I feel the same way...let them fly away on their own.
Commit random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.

Robin explained to me that different birds and different locations call for different ways to handle a release. He said that Decker was not the kind of eagle that you take out of the cage. He does what is best for the eagle.

I can understand that Blue, and I do trust in the people who spend so much effort and time with rehabilitation, but to see a young ealge held in the arms of a person, often at an awkward angle.. then flung into the air for take off, whether the eaglet was ready or not, seems wrong to me. Anyway, to know that a release took place is a matter of great joy.

Thank you so much Blue.. I loved watching your video and rewinded several times the actual moment Decker emerged from the cage and took off.
