Cleaned of oil, Red-tailed Hawks back home

In the “lets make it right” category. Please take a look at the wonderful release of two young red-tailed hawks oiled in the aftermath of the Cosco Busan oil spill last month. They were cleaned of oil at our facility in Cordelia and spent weeks in treatment at WildCare in San Rafael.

As many know already, raptors saw the spill as a golden opportunity to feed on oiled, weak and dying birds along the San Francisco Bay shorelines. What came natural to theses hawks probably has killed many more.

The release of these lucky red-tails this week is testimony to the power of humans trying to heal the balance of nature that we all have altered.

The photos and audio are from Jeff Vendsel a gifted photographer at the Marin Indepedent Journal. See the slide show

    Russ, thank you so much for this uplifting post — and for all you have done with this website to keep us informed since the Cosco Busan oil spill. The bad news for the environment seems so overwhelming, with the Russian and South Korean accidents coming so closely after the one in San Francisco Bay — but successes like this are a cause for joy. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone involved in this life-saving — and life-affirming — work!
