Annual release of California condors into the wild set for September 26, 2015 in Arizona. That would really be something to witness.

Nice but short story of an eagle rescue in Maine. Never could get the video to play, though.

T40, is the link in your post here the one you meant to include?  I'm getting a story about "Attacking acute myeloid leukemia" when I click on that link.
