Dante the Gyr is Released in Iceland

In Iceland this past summer, I visited Skalanes Nature Reserve in the Northeast. Our guide Bjarki Borg■ˇrsson, showed me a Gyrfalcon he and his colleagues rescued because it couldn't fly. At first they thought it flew into a fence. However it was then believed a Northern Fulmar spewed oily vomit all over its plumage, messing it up so badly it couldn't fly. It was taken to rehab in Reykjavik to be cleaned, and was finally released successfully on 16 October 2016.

 

Here's a link to a video on Facebook that shows the release: http://bit.ly/2etbmsd Hope it works. Otherwise please try http://bit.ly/2e6YIhT
