An Update On Beauty’s Condition – 2/14/12

Our thanks to Barbara Loucks of the NYS DEC for this update on Beauty’s condition.

“Based on a conversation I had with the vet staff this morning. The bird is doing fine, eating well on day old chicks, pheasants, etc.

X-Rays revealed no apparent fractures. The bird is holding the wing that was drooping fine now. There is also an abrasion under the wing that should heal ok. The vision in the injured eye appears to be ok. There are several abrasions on the lid which need to heal. So the bird needs time. They are waiting for some blood work; I may hear about that tomorrow and will let you know when I do.

Hopefully this bird will be releasable. It will be moved to a larger aviary as a first step; not sure when, probably soon. We haven’t decided where it would be released yet.”

Many thanks to Barbara for sharing this update on Beauty’s condition.

As we receive updates, we will share them with you.

    Beauty is still here and healing. That is a wonderful blessing tonight. Her life may change, but she is a peregrine, AND she is female! What more can she ask for? She’ll handle it.
    I do hope (and this is the human talking) that she can be released into the wild and go on doing what peregrines do, but the good thing is she is still with us. Light another candle tonight. It is Tuesday, and Beauty was found on Friday. Live free, and fly stong, Beauty!

    That’s great news to hear. Lets hope she can have the rest she needs to recover and can go back to the wild where she belongs.

  16. Amy V. says:

    If the reason for her injury was a territorial battle with the potentially new female, I hope she can be released far away…
