Peregrine Falcon

You just never know what the day will bring ?

As I'm enjoying my morning coffee and read an email then a text that states an injured bird was found in the Selkirk area. My contact went on to say that it looked like a Peregrine ?

After a couple texts and emails I received a photo of the injured bird along with an address and confirmed that it was in fact a Peregrine.

Phone call to Tracy (Peregrine Project Coordinator) and we met at the location. It took some time to locate the bird that had a very good hiding spot. Short time later the bird was in a carrier and on it's way from the Lockport area to Wildlife Haven Rehab Center.

The bird was unbanded and we think that it may be a Tundra bird that was migrating through ?

It appeared that the bird had a broken wing from what we could tell...will have to wait and see what the outcome is.
