The falcon in the picture above was the one who fell from the ledge last week. She finally started flying and flew into the BankNorth building this afternoon. Emily saw the whole thing and called Mass Wildlife to have them come get her as she was on the street and stunned. The parents witnessed the entire thing but will not attempt to save their chick if it is on the ground (according to Fish & Wildlife)
Anyhow, Emily left me an email saying the Juvie Peregrine is resting comfortably and doesn't appear to have any serious injuries. They will be taking x-rays tomorrow though. Updated to add: I am guessing if the injured falcon looks okay after xrays, they will re-release her back to her parents today and the parents should accept her as one of their own. Once I hear back from Emily after she calls Tufts this morning, I will update my blog to let you all know the outcome. Cross your fingers she is okay and can go back home today.
The parents have been nervous Nellies today as well as Emily and I. I am just crossing my fingers that the falcon is okay and the others will survive as well. Very nerve wracking indeed.
