Successful Peregrine Falcon Patient Release

An adult female peregrine falcon was released recently thanks to amazing teamwork.  The injured bird was found behind a Taco Johns’  in Valley City, North Dakota and taken to the Red River Zoo. The zoo, in turn contacted TRC and one of our dedicated volunteers transported it all the way to our clinic.  It presented with internal trauma and a suspected spinal injury, but responded well to treatment and was ready for a test flight three weeks later.  After two weeks of reconditioning, she was back on the wing, resuming her fall journey south to a warmer winter climate.  The Raptor Center loves to share these stories with you.  Will you help us keep making it possible to do this work by considering a gift
