UC Davis Medical Center
Our four young peregrine falcons are still learning to fly. They began leaving the nest last weekend, but the early days can be challenging and exhausting. One of the falcons was found a block away from the hospital, wandering around on the street and being harassed by crows.
After being picked up by an animal control officer and spending two days with a wildlife volunteer, it made its way back to the med center’s nest thanks to Wildlife Care Association of Sacramento.
How do you get a peregrine out of a travel box? Carefully. Very carefully. Especially when mom is flying right overhead! #KeepingUpWithThePeregrines
