Red-tailed releaseNot a dry eye in the house as we released a rehabilitated red-tailed hawk in the memory of our dear friend, Barbara Rosenthal. Barbara remembered both the Raptor Trust and the Binky Foundation in her will and it seemed appropriate that we gather together to salute Barbara with this breath-taking release.  A special shout out to Diane and Len Soucy of the Raptor Trust and to Mickey and Peter Bickford of the Binky Foundation. We know that all of her birding, opera, travel and zoo friends remember her well. Here’s to the good times.

feed meThe Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ  is a wonderful place to visit and support. Owners and operators Len and Diane Soucy hosted us last Sunday on a return visit to this amazing place.  Over the past 40 years Len has taken in, rescued, rehabilitated, released or housed as education animals over 90,000 birds. He has managed to rehabilitate and release almost half that number. Within the 14 acres there is a state-of-the-art medical facilities, quality exterior housing for several hundred birds, and an education building. My good friends who run the Binky Foundation and I plan another visit in the fall when they release a red-tailed hawk in memory of our dear departed friend, Barbara Rosenthal.
