I wondered if anyone would comment on the sky and the way the weather appeared. LOLLovely to see and hear them taking off and flying.
I hope they beat the rain home.
Yea, you're right. I don't guess any one who does this ever gets tired of seeing them come home or considers it to be mundane. Every time one comes home and pick up the bird and think that just a few hours ago, it was 100's of miles away in another state, it just sends chills down your spine and you just go "Wow".............even though you know they can come home, it is still amazing.... don't you wish they could know how much in awe of them we are when they are released to circle and go home.....
I agree with David, I really thought it WAS spectacular!!! Very cool and flashy. They took off so fast and strongly. I guess I'm just so used to watching my couch potatoes, it was certainly a thrill to watch yours take off and soar. Thanks for sharing!
I've always wanted to see a release too, but have never been able to make it to one. I'm sure it's awesome to see.The Albuquerque club is racing my direction this year, so I will be able to attend three or four of the releases. I am excited to see the first. They are expecting between 500 and 600 birds. I am at the 150 mile station. They are doing a 100, 125, 150 and 200, that are all within an hour of me. Thanks for sharing your video. The birds look fast.
