Is it spring?

If it is, it'll be the earliest spring has started that I can remember. Not that I'm complaining. The eagles out at the flight center seem to think that it's here. They are strutting their stuff, getting their strength back, getting ready for release.

They're flying in between the post, hanging from the nets and turning around in short spaces. You can tell they are getting anxious.

We seldom do releases during the winter. The idea is that a bird should have its best opportunity on its first night out. It has been in captivity for a spell with food being brought to it and protected from all. For it to start out on its own again, it should have all of the best opportunities available.

So, spring is the start of release season. And I think these guys and gals can smell it.
