Wonderful Findings

One of life’s little pleasures is sharing with others that may not have the opportunity to see some of Mother Natures handy work up close.

Coopers Hawks are one of those birds that tolerate human presence.

The early bird catches the worm or in this case the fish…early morning visit to an Osprey site finds that I was in time for breakfast.
The catch of the day was a Bullhead

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.
