Peregrine Falcon #19-0940 was successfully released on Tuesday, September 10. About 40-50 people attended the release. Dr. Ernesto released the falcon facing the James River, with a perfect view of the very bridge where the young falcon hatched. The bird flew smoothly, circled the crowd, and flew off into the nearby trees.
