Free the Gannet

I was able to help a friend release a juvenile Northern Gannet back into the wild today. It had been rescued in northern New Jersey and brought back to good health at Tri-State Bird Rescue in northern Delaware. The Gannet enjoyed regaining its freedom and flew out over Delaware Bay immediately upon release.

    Cool shots Tony! He sure was a strong flyer! Hopefully he met up with some buddies out there somewhere. Thanks again for helping!
