wonderful to see, I wish I could have been there watching their release, I saw birds realsed before after being rescused, it is a wonderful sight and a wonderful feeling as they take on the sky and the freedom that is rightly theirs :)

So touching. At least there are some humans willing to undo the harm done by the greedy ones.
I hope this bird has a long and happy life.
