UPDATE: 12/5/2020 This falcon was released in Huntertown today

Several calls were issued for birds tonight. Suz and I took the second one down in Bryant, about 60 miles from us. We arrived to talk with the caller and his grandson. The grandson identified it as a peregrine. We followed the two of them in their 4 wheeler (picture attached) for about a half mile out into their soybean fields. We uncovered the basket they had covered him in and it was a juvie peregrine. We talked with several members of their family and their relatives down the road. Brochures were handed out to all ot the families present. Super nice folks.


He was taken to ICU where he was triaged by Diana. Low keel score, possible head trauma and he was treated and put in a cage. As always we hope and pray these little guys can get back to mother nature. Prayers for you little one.
