On todayls toss the first 4 birds were released on the way back from a shorter distance because they were lpartially injured.  Today we had our first mass release.  It was very strange the first 350 came great, groups coming right after each other then they started coming in smaller groups.  Hopefully we will get some more on 2nd day.  Good luck.
