Mark explained that when CPF does a release, unlike others we DONOT throw(cast) the bird skyward, we allow the bird to decide when it wishes to fly. Casting the bird, after its been in a carrier/rehabbed possibly/upset by being caught in the first place is an accident waiting to happen. This bird much as the other release CPF did at Rosetta 2 years ago, went off without a hitch. The Peregrine flew freely when it decided. It circled over the lake, finding its wings and then flying off strongly. Its a beautiful thing.
