My daughter volunteers at Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of MN, www.mrcmn.org feeding birds. Today they let her take a female red wing blackbird to release. We went to a park in Rosemount and she opened the box and away he flew. She few to a nearby tree and sat there for some time before flying away.
This is the area she now lives in until she can find other birds to migrate south. The Center says instinct will lead her to other birds and migration. It was exciting to see her fly away, but scary, too, hoping she can survive in the wild. She had been cared for in the Center since she was orphaned as a baby.
