Updates on Seabreeze and Seneca Tower Juvie! 8/24/17

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

We are so happy to post this good news update about Seabreeze and the juvie rescued near Seneca Towers.

Jenny Landry, Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), reports the following:

Seabreeze (Eyas that fell from the Times Square nest location, banded 25 Black Over BA Green, which lost nearly half of its retrices (tail feathers)

By mid July, his tail feathers had grown in over half way and he had become an excellent flyer. He was flying the length of the flight cage and making excellent turns. He was easily catching live prey and ready for release. He was released near Phoenix, New York.

The young fledgling falcon that was recovered near the Seneca Towers building:

This bird was a newly fledged male that appeared to tangle with a fence. It did not appear to have any broken bones; however, he did seem to have a lot of bruising and soreness. It appears that all he needed was some rest and then some practice flying. He is currently flying very well and being tested with live prey. He has been fitted with bands (27 Black over BA Green) so he will be released as soon as he is ready.

This is such wonderful news and we thank Jenny very much for the update.
