BREAKING: 19/K injured

June 6, 2016 Joel Jorgensen

We received the unfortunate news the male Peregrine Falcon, 19/K, was recovered by Lincoln Animal Control this morning near 27th and Fair Street.  19/K was injured and obviously unable to fly. Amanda Kaufman, an Animal Control Officer and raptor expert, was on the scene and took the following photos of the male.





19/K is now in the hands of Fontenelle Forest’s Raptor Recovery.  He will undergo additional evaluation and I will pass along any information once I receive it.  We will also continue evaluate and monitor the situation at the nest box.  Let’s hope for the best.
