Update from Betty Ann:  Sad


Hello. Here is an update on our injured peregrine falcon and the new falcon:

I just learned that the female, 91/BA (band number) has a fractured metacarpal (wing/shoulder) that fortunately was nicely lined up and splinted. Metacarpal fractures take a very long time to heal, so she will be there for several months. Kathy Clark, Supervising Zoologist with NJ Division Fish & Wildlife, said she can be released only when she is fully healed and after any new chicks have fledged at the courthouse because she would likely interfere with the new falcon pair and family. So, at minimum she will be there until late summer.



Thank you for posting the update, I kept checking earlier and was wondering when they would post something.  I'd rather they kept her so she heals up good and past nesting season so she doesn't go back and challenge a female that is hopped up on hormones - it wouldn't end well in that situation.  They are doing the right thing.  Athough I will miss seeing her raise another brood this year, at least we know she is safe and she is in good hands.

Thanks for posting the update. While part of me is sad that Cadence has a fracture, another part is very relieved for all concerned that she will not be released until this breeding/fledging season is over.

Update on Cadence from Betty Ann Kelly:


I called to check up on our injured, female falcon BA/91...remember her? Alyssa at the Raptor Trust tells me that the vet checked on BA/91 and found that a callus is forming where the wing was broken (the metacarpal) so they kept the wing unwrapped while she continues to heal in an outdoor cage that will limit her movement.

ps:  She also added in response to someone who said the way she understands it is the callus is a good thing as it is new bone?

Betty Ann:  Yes, the callus means the bone is healing.

Found this on the UC forum this morning - I guess someone wrote in asking about Cadence..I've omitted the person's name here out of respect.

Hi XXXXX,
The peregrine's wing fracture isn't completely healed yet so its
condition is guarded. we have to be sure it is completely healed so
it will be a while.

Thanks!

Thanks Carly. I imagine Cadence will be in rehab for quite a long time. It's nice to get updates.  thumbsup

I believe it was posted on Union County Falcon Cam that Cadence will not be released until after all birds have successfully fledged and there is much less danger that she and the new female will get into another battle.  August, September or October, maybe??

Yes it was Bonnie.  Perhaps the person that wrote in asking about Cadence didn't see that earlier post.

Update from Betty Ann:

An update on 91/BA, our former resident female who was injured in an attack by the current female, "Frida". Raptor Trust, in Millington, NJ, where she is recovering from a broken wing bone, says she is "doing well" and will likely be released this summer once our eyases fledge. This is to avoid having her return to the nest site and engage in another potential battle.
