I know we like to hear about our fledglings but not this way! Like Brian said, if she can't be released for some reason, maybe she can come to Wild Wings. Poor Cali! Sad

 Is somewhere in Indiana County PA (I think!) From Kate St John

The only Rehabber I found in Indiana County is this one;

Indiana County
(Species category code is listed above each rehabilitator's profile)

M = Mammals
P = Passerines (songbirds, water fowl & woodpeckers)
R = Raptors (hawks, owls, falcons, eagles and vultures)
RVS = Rabies Vector Species (raccoons, skunks, bats, groundhogs, coyotes & foxes)
END = Endangered/Threatened Species

(updated April 14th, 2011)

M, RVS
Ayn  Van Dyke

Marion Center, PA   15759    Just checking

OK, Cali is NOT at the Wildlife Rehab I posted. The lady said to check with Wildlife Works or Wildlife center of Pittsburgh. I have the phone numbers for both places.

I want her at Wild Wings too if it looks like it is too severe.  That was my immediate thought.  I want her to be free but if she can't be, I want her where we know she will be loved and cared for.

Poor Callidora.  Thankfully she was found and is in good hands where she will receive great care.  Just as I arrived home late tonite, I received the bad news from Donna & MAK.  When I got onto my computer, I found an email from Kate St. John, with the sad news.

Callidora has a badly injured wing & is at a rehabber in PA.  She will be Xrayed to see the extent of the damage.

Kate has promised to keep us posted as she receives updates from the rehabber.

I'm sure the rehabber will keep Kate updated with Callidora's progress, so she can let us know.  I know how impatient we all get (including me!).

As soon as I hear anything more, I will share with the forum.  Poor Callidora.  Get well soon little one!   heart wub2 heart

Wow...so many thoughts right now...she's almost 2 so she's pretty strong to make it this far... interesting that she's near where Beauty was hatched.  I've often wondered if the Toronto nesting cluster of Mariah's daughters might indicate that's where Mariah was hatched.  

But mostly I'm happy she was found & is receiving good care and sending healing thoughts her way...  wub2

Good rehabbers always need money...... can we send them some????

You're right nycbird.  Rehabbers can always use donations.  But I've found in many cases they want to remain anonymous so they don't get overrun with phone calls by well meaning, caring folks.  I'll have Kate check to see if the rehabber minds us knowing who they are and whether we can somehow get donations to them.

Mariah's rehabber did not want their information published, so we honored that request.

Some rehabbers are more than happy to be known, so let's wait and see what Callidora's rehabber's want.

Hey MAK!  Callidora beat all the odds!  She made it to her 2nd year!  She's obviously a very strong falcon that has learned to successfully hunt and survive on her own.  Let's hope that the injury to her wing is not too severe.  They heal very quickly.  

Sending healing thoughts and prayers to our dear Callidora.   wub2

Everyone does not need to know rehabbers info..... maybe a P.O. Box for Kate ???  Or someone who does know could collect and take it to rehabber.  If Callie comes home to Wild Wings, we might have to pay her bus fare, too.  Pooling our pennies could go a long way with all Callie's fans.

I'll ask Kate the best way to get donations to the rehabber.
