Farewell Zara! Fly High and Be Free! Zara Has Been Released – 8/25/22

Zara was released yesterday afternoon (8/25/22) at approximately 2:45 pm at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. It was determined that she would be able to feed herself and survive.

Amy Mahar, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYDEC) sent us a video of Zara’s release which was very successful. Please click on the link below to see Zara’s flight to freedom!

Zara’s Flight to Freedom!

We hope to receive some more pictures of Zara’s release. When we do, we’ll share them.

Here is a collage of still pictures from the video. Thanks Joyce!

Thanks to all that contributed to Zara’s second chance at a life as a free Peregrine Falcon! Who knows, we may hear about her again in the future, raising a family of her own.

Farewell Zara!

    What a heartwarming sight, to see her fly through the trees towards freedom! I hope she does not run afoul of any buildings anymore, but finds a nice cliff somewhere with an attentive mate.
