Late last Thursday the first raptor release took place at the 
Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary in Boylston MA

 Jessica Zorge of our Bernice Barbour Wildlife Clinic brought a feisty little Saw-whet Owl that spent 2 weeks at the clinic after being found at a construction site in Worcester MA. She and Shalin Liu stand in front of the sanctuary's beautiful 
Trail House prior to the release.

Shalin and Jessica take a quick look at the owl.

Then it's out to the woods to release the Saw-whet.

He didn't stop to say "Thank You", 
his health and freedom are thanks enough.
