Peregrine Falcon #20-2029 update
July 14, 2020

Peregrine Falcon #20-2029 has been continuing to improve in flight and stamina during each daily exercise session. The staff are considering creancing the bird to better exercise the young falcon. Creancing is a falconry technique that uses a long braided nylon line that allows a bird to be tethered during flight in a large open space. Creancing allows for more maneuvering and better assessment of some raptors; it’s regularly used for recovering falcon patients, and can be helpful for other individuals based on attitude and injury.

As the falcon improves, the staff are reaching out this week to the Department of Wildlife Resources biologists to plan a release. DWR biologists will determine when and where the release takes place.
Full Patient History:
Peregrine Falcon #20-2029

This was a pretty disappointing decision. Not surprising, Bryan likes hack boxes and doesn’t like this city location. I never see the hacked fledges appear anywhere, and I think it is over 1,000 birds at this point. You would think some of them would be around nesting, but it never seems to happen. I will say, two of three JRB chicks fledged successfully and have been re-spotted. These falcons need training from adults or falconry. Or a release on the eastern shore where Cobb Island is, where they can hunt easily. That will ever happen though. Oh well...

i guess, it does depend don your hack site. I have no knowledge of your hack site
.Where our biologist hacks , we have had several birds return to nest. We even had one this year return and nest on our bow river and successfully fledge 4 chicks This site had not had a falcon nesting there for 65 years , so we were pretty stoked. we also had 2 return to nutrien site. and our female at Genesee is a hacked falcon from the pembina.
It would not be good to return to Richmond as parent s would not accept her now. Training through falconry works also and then release. and Cobb island does seem to be a good release site if trained to hunt by falconry


I iwsh her such success.
