Silver Haired Bat rescue May 2014

I was asked a few months ago to go check on a bat at a condo.  So I packed my margarine container, special gloves, tape  and away I went.  Once I arrived at the condo it was very easy to see the bat who had been on the screen for 3 days.  
I quickly went outside and covered the bat with margarine container then pushed the cover up and in the bat went.
I had sent this photo to TWC to show them the bat . It was a Silver Haired Bat (a first for me).

The bat was fed some special food and the next day the TWC said he was just fine and released back into the wild.

Red-tailed hawk released for the Toronto Wildlife Centre. July 5, 2014

On July 5, 2014 I was asked by Toronto Wildlife Centre to release a red-tailed hawk back to his home.  Helena came with me to do the release.  Thanks to parking officers who allowed me to park my car  in a safe spot and then release the hawk back to his home.  What a joy it was to see the hawk fly out of the box and then go to into the trees nearby.  He did a bit of screaming to let everyone know he was back home.  Thank you TWC for helping this juvenile red-tailed hawk return to the wild.

Where he landed and he let everyone know he was there.
Plus the robins and orioles ere attacking him trying to get him away from their territory.

My favourite shot of the release 

See the brown tail.  Juvenile red-tailed hawks have a brown tail. Only adults have the beautiful red tail.

Good luck little one.
