Three raptors released back into Va. wild


HAMPTON, Va. (WTVR)–The Wildlife Center of Virginia released a peregrine falcon today at the Grandview Nature Preserve in Hampton.

The Center helped bring the bird back to health after it was discovered in Virginia Beach with a wing fracture.

Another high-profile bird also flew free today. A Golden Eagle that had also suffered a fractured wing among other injuries was released at Wintergreen Resort.

Tomorrow the center will release a Bald Eagle at the Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge near Warsaw. The eagle came to the center with injuries which vets believe were caused by a passing car.

Never in the Center’s history have three birds of this size been released within such a short time from each other.
