Such Sweet Sorrow

The young crow who came in several weeks ago with a broken leg has successfully been released back in his home territory!

Read about the juvenile crow's history in our previous blog entries here and here.

The crow was picked up from VINS last week, after we successfully splinted and healed a severely broken leg, by the volunteer transporter who originally brought him to us. She sent us a few pictures of his release day, below. After these pictures were taken the crow flew up to a tree and met another crow to spend the day with.


It was such fun watching him heal and grow up here at VINS, and while we will miss his cawing in the background, it is always more fun to see a happy ending like this one, as they fly away and leave us in their dust.
