Recovered Osprey Released

Osprey Release

Teton Raptor Center released another osprey over the weekend that had been shot with a shotgun earlier this year in an undisclosed location in Idaho.  Raptor Center officials say for several weeks, the Osprey had been isolated, kept calm and fed.  Ospreys are notorious for being difficult to keep in captivity since they can be very picky eaters and damage feathers by jumping around. After three weeks recovering in the raptor barn, TRC began flying her daily on a tether to improve strength and coordination. She improved quickly and is now flying normally. Just as this Osprey leaves Teton Raptor Center, a Swainson’s hawk shot near Idaho Falls has been admitted to the rehab program. The hawk was shot near a chicken coop, although Swainson’s hawks primarily prey on small mammals and insects. The person responsible has been cited for violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
