How wonderful to see this Peregrine looking so well, I really never expected it to survive being on it's back. Great pictures, thank you.

Little Stinker.. I like that  mhihi

I was a bit confused, at the beginning of the video there was an adult in the nest, then they delivered the Perlet to the nest and the mother flew off. The mother seemed somewhat unafraid. Thanks for the link to the video.

Well, they're calling the chick 'Silver' - and he's off to rehab after a couple of unsuccessful (?) fledges.

Bonnie, thanks for the update.  flower
This little one has been through a lot -- he has also been very lucky to have people caring for him
and watching out for him.   At this point, he is probably better off to be at the rehab.  He certainly has taught
us a lot in his young life and if he has to be an ambassador for education, I'm sure he will be a great one!  love

He is indeed beautiful. I hope he learns to fly and can be independent.

Posted on Facebook by Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center, today at 11:50am:
Peregrine Update: Wildlife Center staff took the falcon to be examined by Dr. Robert Wagner yesterday evening. A complete physical examination was conducted. The formerly missing primary feathers are almost completely grown, but our licensed rehabilitators & the veterinarian agree that the bird displays neurological deficits. A blood sample was taken to gain insight on these inconsistencies. A test is also being conducted to rule out lead poisoning. Supportive care will continue as the test results are pending. The falcon will continue to be treated by Wildlife Center staff.

Click for picture (I hope!):

Posted on FB by Animal Rescue League:
17 hrs ยท (7-8-15, approx. 4:30pm)
Peregrine Update: It's a boy! X-ray reports have revealed that the falcon is a male. We have also received the results from initial blood tests which have all been normal. We are still waiting for the reports from the lead test, but the bird is gaining weight & his flight feathers continue to grow. We will continue to provide public updates on the peregrine as soon as new information develops, but are unable to respond to individual inquiries about this patient.

The FB page has a cute tape of the falcon:
