Fay VanessIn honor and memory of Dr. Ned Dudney, two juvenile Red-tailed hawks were released from the The Dr. Ned & Fay Dudney Clear Creek Nature Center in League City, TX Saturday, March 6, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. His widow, Fay Dudney and daughter Vaness Hamilton were in attendance. A planned third hawk was held back because damaged talons needed a little more time to heal. An excellent photograph of the event was published in Sunday’s Houston Chronicle, City section (B2). Several other media outlets were in attendance. It was a gorgeous spring morning and the first hawk circled and landed in the top of a nearby tree. The second hawk circled and landed in another nearby tree.  The two rendezvoused briefly in a single tree before flying off together.
