A rehabilitated male osprey waits to be released on the beach at Q’Emiln Riverside Park in Post Falls Friday morning, Aug. 4, 2006. The bird was found, unable to fly, at a riverfront home in Post Falls six weeks ago. X-rays showed the bird had a broken collar bone and raptor biologist Jane Cantwell kept the bird in a large aviary until it healed. Before release, Cantwell transplanted some flight feathers from another bird onto the bird’s wings to replace feathers that were damaged while the bird was grounded.
