A hawk returns to the wild!

Greta Mealey, director of the Falcon Batchelor Bird of Prey Center at the Miami Science Museum, recently conducted a bird release on the Palmer Trinity School North Campus. Mealey is the wife of Brian Mealey, a biology teacher at the school. In January 2011, a short-tailed hawk was admitted to the museum’s rehabilitation center after being found in a driveway unable to fly. The hawk was diagnosed with a fractured shoulder and given a soft cast and splint, then committed to cage rest until a veterinarian confirmed his full recovery. On Sept. 15, after months of medical attention, rehabilitation and flight conditioning, Palmer Trinity School students, faculty and staff watched as Dean Judi Jennings released the hawk to the wild from the Palmer Trinity School football field.
