Thank you for the follow up beans. Good to see them released, but they still look like babies!

On one of the news shows I saw a story on this where they interviewed the landscape and he appeared very distraught about it all. The story said he made a $2500 donation to [I believe] IBR to help with their care. In my humble opinion, I think the post office should bear responsibility

Whatever the legal outcome is, this story delivered a powerful message to not trim trees during baby bird season.

They look young to me, too. But I saw them take some short flights. They wanted to stay together and you can see all four lined up in one of the video clips. A lot of people were there, including mr. Pulido, so he has become an advocate. That is better than a fine or jail!

You may remember Mitra, the Raven I helped affection train at Lindsay Wildlife Museum Hospital. He was transferred to Cascades Raptor Center in August 2011. Here he is, being trained to the glove:

I don't know if this has been posted before, but it is very interesting. Bob Anderson is a great man for sure. I may not like some of his beliefs on some things but he is one of the greats.
If nothing else look at the 12:12 mark it show a chick from the inside breaking out of the shell it is so awesome

Scientists Finally Find Elusive Hormone Leptin in Birds


Researchers have found leptin – a hormone that regulates body fat storage, metabolism and appetite – in the Peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), the mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) and the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata).

That is interesting for sure about the wild birds they mention.

I was a little troubled by their mention of the poultry industry and how leptin is not present in chickens. I sure hope this does not lead to artificially producing leptin for use in the poultry industry.

Each evening a mated pair of Mourning Doves enjoys a meal at my bird feeder.

July 16 I rescued one of them in my yard. She had probably been caught by a cat. I took her to Lindsay Wildlife Hospital. One of the techs I know checked her in for me. That evening she called me: The dove did not make it. The bird had been scalped. Our vet did some suturing and things looked okay until they took rads. The skull was fractured and brain was protruding. She was humanely euthanized.

Her mate returns each evening. He walks around the grass and then flies up to the platform feeder. He doesn't eat much. And then he flies off.

Please keep your cats indoors. Thank you.

Seeing is everything: Falcon eye surgery
Cataract surgery for humans is fairly routine and in the world of veterinary ophthalmology, the same surgery is often performed on dogs. Birds? Not so much. Dr. Ruth Marrion, a Massachusetts-based veterinarian, will soon perform the surgery on Banner, a young peregrine falcon from the New Hampshire School of Falconry. Marrion has performed surgery on birds before, but for this operation, there is a ground-breaking twist: it’s the second time that veterinarians will attempt to implant an artificial lens into a raptor – and the first time for a falcon.
A lot more here:

This is indeed good news. I'm glad there are advances in eye surgery for wildlife. They depend on their eyes to survive.

WOW! Interesting. Having good eyesight is paramount to survival.

Vermont loons and peregrine falcons had good nesting year; bald Eagles nesting was down

MONTPELIER, Vermont — The once-endangered loons had a record year nesting on some of Vermont's lakes and ponds while nesting for bald eagles was down from the previous year , the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife said Wednesday.

Nesting loons produced 65 chicks that survived to leave their nests across the state, biologists said.

Peregrine falcons also had a good breeding season this year. Last month, the state reported an estimated 50 young peregrines left their nests.

"Rare birds such as peregrine falcons and loons are very sensitive to human disturbance while nesting. They nest only in a few specific habitats, so they need to find these in undeveloped places that are away from people," said John Buck, nongame bird project leader for the Fish & Wildlife Department.

Both loons and peregrine falcons were removed from the state's endangered species list in 2005.

But the number of bald eagles that left their nests this year was down to 17 from a modern record of 26 in 2013. Biologists blame the lingering cold weather for the eagle reproductive decline. But a single down year for nesting is not a major concern since success will vary due to changes in weather or food, Buck said.

"We remain optimistic about the future of eagles in Vermont due to the widespread reports we have received of adult eagles throughout the state," he said.

This is a great story about Banner - a peregrine falcon in New Hampshire who can see again!
