Freedom Friday!

Welcome to week two of our Freedom Friday videos!  This week we show the renesting of two baby red shouldered hawks whose nest was blown down in a storm.  The Wildlife Center of Venice was called and dispatched Jerry and Sandy, two of our busiest rescuers, out to catch the juveniles.  They made the long, but all too familiar, drive out to WCV to get them checked out.  After a few days, a few free meals, and a clean bill of health, Mike and Tammy Kipp were sent out to renest them.  Mike, our newest board member, and tree climber extraordinaire, was able to climb the tree and secure a new makeshift nest out of a wicker basket.   Mike also tossed a “to go order” of a few mice in the nest  to hold them over until the parents returned.  The parents were back in the nest feeding their kiddos in their new digs about 30 minutes afterwards.   Thanks to all involved.  Pretty cool stuff!
