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.
Thanks to Amanda Kaufman and Lincoln Animal Control for quickly recovering 19/K. Thanks to Amanda for permission to use her photos. Finally, thanks to the experts at Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery for tending to 19/K.
