We released two juvenile bald eagles that had been in our care for nearly a year. Flew well, great to see them go. Pics Here (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1192536507452842.1073741896.134671693239334&type=3)

Brilliant !

I have also been following the fortunes of those on the Estonia site.

Nearly all grown up and departed now but still well worth a look...

Thanks vulcanised

We're planning to install some high end security cams in our large raptor facilty so that we can monitor the patients remotely and stream one or two to the web.

Do the released birds ever 'return'?

I'm not talking about hanging around for a few days, but do they ever reappear after being away for weeks?

No not really. If the eagle is a mature bird 4+ years old it probably has an established territory so we will return the bird to where it originated. If the bird is an immature eagle we usually release near a food source and where other eagles gather. We don't very often get to see the birds after release, however we had one mature that had a nest near New Glasgow NS within sight of one of the people who rescued it. They were able to report back regular sighting of the bird after release and we have observed her ourselves when we were in the area.
Generally I think they are very happy to get away from us and never return.
