I sent this article to John, our now retired DNR fish and wildlife expert, and he laughed and said he had a few escapees, but never when witnessed by the press! :teehee:

Peregrine falcon breeding pairs spotted in Black Hills SD :sum9:
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) Breeding peregrine falcons have been found in South Dakota for the first time in 50 years.

The Game, Fish and Parks Department confirms that two pairs of peregrines successfully nested in the Black Hills earlier this year with each pair producing three chicks.

American peregrine falcons were removed from the federal endangered species list in 1999, but they're still listed as endangered in South Dakota, where there's limited habitat.

Since 1999 there have been four efforts in the state -- three of them in Rapid City -- to re-introduce the falcons. It is not known if any of the four adult nesters were released as part of those efforts.


================================
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Breeding peregrine falcons have been found in South Dakota for the first time in 50 years.

The Game, Fish and Parks Department confirmed that two pairs of peregrines successfully nested in the Black Hills earlier this year, the Capital Journal (http://bit.ly/2tiXNXZ ) reported. A third pair was spotted but didn't appear to have a nest.

American peregrine falcons were removed from the federal endangered species list in 1999 but are still listed as endangered in South Dakota, where there's limited habitat.

The birds were found in part because of the department's effort to establish delisting criteria for all the species on the state's threatened or endangered-species list. The effort led the department to hire retired Wyoming biologist Bob Oakleaf, who specializes in peregrine falcons, to help identify potential nest sites.

The search included an aerial survey of the Black Hills to identify which cliffs peregrines may use, as well as a ground survey to see if any birds were already there.

"We basically sat in lawn chairs and watched," said Casey Heimerl, a wildlife biologist with the department.

The criteria are expected to be finalized over the next few months. They will require a certain number of nesting pairs over a certain number of years. Currently the falcons can only be removed from the list if the department finds five nesting pairs for five consecutive years, but Heimerl said those numbers may change as new data is evaluated.

great read. :loveheart2: but i find it harder it let go with my birds ,than my kids. I let my kids crash , fall and pick themselves up again,(with silent guidance from afar) to go on to be caring individuals , but I somehow cling to my birds ma bit more. I guess, because I feel helpless, in their struggles in urban environments

Founders of wildlife center charged with animal neglect
Animals at now-closed center were released, transferred or euthanized

BEND, Ore. (KOIN) – The former co-founders of the now-closed High Desert Wildlife Center — a rescue, treatment, education and research facility — have been indicted on allegations of animal neglect, including neglecting a bald eagle.
On Friday, a Deschutes County grand jury delivered a 22-count indictment against Jeanette Bonomo and Jeffrey Dean Cooney.

DA John Hummel told KOIN 6 News he was prepared to release more information on the case late Tuesday.

Bonomo and Cooney are both charged with multiple counts of 2nd-degree animal neglect and violating state wildlife laws with a culpable mental state.

Records show that 18 of the 19 counts pertaining to 2nd-degree animal neglect are misdemeanor offense; however, one is a Class C felony. Second-degree animal neglect becomes a felony when the offense was part of a criminal episode involving 11 or more animals.

The indictment alleges Bonomo and Cooney “unlawfully and with criminal negligence fail[ed] to provide minimum care for an animal in defendant’s custody and control.” The animals listed include an Swainson’s hawk, red-tailed hawk, golden eagles, bald eagle, peregrine falcon, barn owl, northern pygmy owl, saw-whet owl, northern flickers, Canada goose, robin, mountain blue bird and an ash-throated fly catcher.

According to the indictment, between Aug. 1, 2015 and Aug. 31, 2016 Bonomo and Cooney unlawfully held wildlife for more than 180 days, were in possession of a restricted species and failed to maintain required records.

The case was investigated by the Oregon State Police and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Bend Bulletin and Observer Newspaper reported Cooney and Bonomo were both the co-founders of the High Desert Wildlife Center in Bend, which has since closed.

“Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife took most of the animals receiving care there [in mid-August 2016],” the paper reported.

Michelle Dennehy, the Wildlife Communications Coordinator for ODFW, said she was aware of the organization when reached by phone Tuesday, but did not have immediate knowledge on the grand jury indictment filed against Cooney and Bonomo. Dennehy said she was checking and would update KOIN 6 News with additional information once released.

The 2 newspapers also reported that some animals at the High Desert Wildlife Center were released, transferred or euthanized.

A former volunteer told The Bulletin she stopped working there because she was frustrated by the chaotic and unclean environment. She said bird enclosures were too small and some birds died of starvation or dehydration.

Attempts to reach Cooney and Bonomo for comment were not successful.

The phone number for the High Desert Wildlife center went to voicemail and the organization’s website is down.

About 3500 !!! Lesser Kestrels roost in the trees in a Greek village.
Original article in French:
[Google]Translation of the entire article:
[[The Lesser Kestrel ( Falco naummani ) is a small bird of prey with a length between 27 and 33 cm, strongly resembling Kestrel ( Falco tinnunculus ) (read Distinguish Falcons Kestrel and Lesser Kestrel ). It is a species primarily insectivorous but also eat small birds, reptiles and rodents.
The Lesser Kestrel is gregarious: they nest in colonies on cliffs and ancient buildings and winters in small groups. The species breeds in the Mediterranean region to China via Central Asia. It is migratory and winters in sub-Saharan Africa to West Asia. This raptor but did not migrate directly: for weeks, individuals perform pre-migration, during which they (especially the young of the year) are preparing for the upcoming trip.
They sometimes form enormous dormitories in wintering areas, usually in trees: a member of the League for the Protection of Birds was discovered in January 2007 in Senegal dormitory involving 28,600 birds. Large pre-migration gatherings are also noted in summer in southern Europe, for example in the French departments of Pyrénées-Orientales, Aude, Aveyron, Lozère and Bouches-du-Rhône (read dormitories of Lesser Kestrels in the south of France ), Spain and the Balkans (read A huge dorm Lesser Kestrels in Albania ). Before joining the site where they will spend the night, they gather in pre-dormitories (see Pre-dormitories,) Eg on pylons (read Influx of Lesser Kestrels in the south of France ).
In an article published in 2016 in the Journal of Raptor Research, Greek ornithologists presented the results of 15 years of follow-up of a pre-migration dormitory located in the city of Ioannina, in the northwest of Greece: to 3 500 falcons were counted together in August. They spend the night in Eastern plane trees ( Platanus orientalis ) growing on the shores of Lake Pamvotida and hunt grasshoppers in remote alpine meadows of 34 km. For the protection of the species, it is vital to identify and protect dormitories and hunting areas used during the pre-migration period.]]
