It would have be quite difficult to do alone. I had my friend flank the bird to scare it towards me. I was very careful with its talons and beak. The risk was worth it. I'd take a few battle wounds to help out a hurt creature. I hope it heals and that I can be there for its release. Regardless, I am going to be part of this rehab facility in any way I can to help them continue their mission.

What a wonderful thing!! I've been involved in raptor rehab for about 15 years, and it's not often that the people who find the injurd bird can capture it!! That takes some guts!! This is a beautiful juvenile, a first year bird, and they're pretty clumsy!! Great job!!!! I hope you get to be involved in its release...that's the best feeling in the world!!
