After spending the night in the care of raptor rehabilator Lisa Barlow in Virginia Beach, NE was taken to Midway Veterinary Hospital and examined this morning by Dr. Ruth McQueen. NE was found to be in excellent health with no injuries. At 1:00pm today NE was returned by Lisa Barlow to Norfolk Botanical Garden and released back into the wild. He was placed on a six-foot high T-bar perch to get him off the ground and after a few seconds of looking around and orienting himself he launched into the air and flew directly toward his nest which was about 500 yards away. He flew past the nest tree and landed in a gum tree close to the picnic area. About 3:00 NE flew to the 2008 camera tree and then at 3:30 flew to the nest tree and sat on the front branch (love branch) next to Camellia (NC). Back home and all is well.
