Peregrine Falcon Rescue and Release Oct 2012

This sub adult peregrine falcon was found.  The folks took it to be checkout and all was fine.
The falcon stayed overnight and was released this afternoon at 2:30pm
A beautiful falcon.

After 5 min he finally peeked out

a little more

Hey who are you sitting on the ground

I missed the flight but saw the tail.
Peregrines are the fastest bird in the world

Enjoying the bluffs - soaring high and was soon gone from sight.

Safe journey

the Canadian Peregrine Foundation did the release of the peregrine falcon today. Wonderful to see the falcon flying back into the wild.
This was a unbanded falcon.
