Peregrine Falcon #20-2029 update

Peregrine Falcon #20-2029 has been doing well for the past few days; the falcon is in an outdoor flight pen, and staff members are encouraging the young falcon to fly several lengths of the flight pen each day. So far, the fledgling still has some difficulties taking off from the ground, but flies beautifully when she launches herself from a high perch. The vet team is hoping that a couple more days of exercise will help her improve as her feathers continue to grow.

The staff are in close touch with officials from the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries; biologists hope to release the young bird soon.
