The Peregrine Falcon, ( "Hal" hatched in Hamilton last May) is now flying
the hopefully friendly skies of Chatham again. He was picked up this
morning from the Tamarack Raptor Rehab. Centre by Pud Hunter of the M.N.R.
in Aylmer, transported to Chatham and releasedon the outskirts of town.
Apparently a beautiful release. He flew several hundred metres into a tree
and landed , then went for a fly, scaring up Pigeons, Starlings etc. then
back into the tree. Good luck Hal!
We intially felt that Hal had collided with something. However, we had
been puzzled about 3 scabby little bumps each roughly a millimetre around.
Two on one toe of the left foot and one on a toe of the right foot. I also
had to hand feed Hal for most of his stay at Tamarack until the last few
days. The "scabby bumps" and his lack of appetite could well be the result
of being eletrocuted. These are symptoms and this may well be the answer
to his initial distress.
