Red-tailed hawk will be released in North Portland on New Year's Day

A young red-tailed hawk who's finished her rehab at the Audubon Society of Portland will greet the wild on New Year's Day with a release in North Portland.

Miss Blue 33 is due to be freed by the society and Portland parks officials off Kelley Point Park, which borders the Willamette and Columbia rivers. The only possible glitch that could postpone the release: heavy winds or rain.

Otherwise, Miss Blue will be free to resume her travels. She was hatched last May or June in the Seattle area and then was captured in August at SeaTac International Airport. The Raptor Research Group, as part of an effort to keep the birds from colliding with planes, released her 75 miles north in Skagit flats, a popular birding area north of Seattle.
