More Sad News…Phoenix Found Injured in Brockport

It is with much sadness that we have to report the loss of another young Rochester falcon, Phoenix.

Fly Free Phoenix

On August 24th, Phoenix was found injured in the Town of Brockport, 20 miles west of Rochester. He was taken to a rehabilitator not too far way. The severity of Phoenix’s injuries were determined. He had a severe spinal injury. The rehabilitator, with help from a Department of Environmental Conservation Officer, was able to transport Phoenix to the Cornell Wildlife Veterinary Clinic. Unfortunately, despite the effort to help Phoenix, we just learned that Phoenix did not survive his injuries.

    I wonder if Lakota was with him and that’s why he’s suddenly come home. Poor Phoenix, they have such a hard life the first year and with the environmental odds being stacked up against them – I expect it will worsen in years to come. Fly free little one, we will always remember you <3

    Oh:-( I had just asked about Phoenix on Sept. 27th and now we know… But, as far as we know, two out of four are still alive, which is better than average.
