Osprey Rescued

Here is a photo of the Osprey that we rescued a few years ago. The Osprey broke his wing while diving into the lake. We fished him out of the lake using the oar out of our boat. He was picked up and flown by airplane to Minneapolis to the raptor rescue center. He had a compound fracture in his radius and Ulna. They did surgery and inserted pins in the wing. He recovered but was unable to released back into the wild. We heard he is now used in education.
