Rescue Recovery Release
Field Sparrow Released

Field Sparrow Photo-Kim Santos

This little Field Sparrow came to us back in November. A cat had caught the bird and damaged his tail feathers. The bird was quiet and unable to fly for several weeks. After treatment with antibiotics and rest it was later placed in an outdoor flight cage for several weeks to regain muscle strength. Today we caught the bird and placed it in a carrier in order to video the release. The sparrow was difficult to catch letting us know it was ready to go. When the box was opened he flew to the closest tree to acclimate then flew further away. Great job everyone!
