Peregrine Falcon "Nelson"
About This Image
Peregrine Falcon "Nelson" - this male peregrine falcon was injured, - blinded in one eye and injured his wing at the same time, so he cannot be released to the wild. He was found in a chicken coop near the rescue facility! and he had injury to his left eye which they believe was caused by wire netting, when he dived into the chicken coop. Now a cataract has formed over the injured eye. They think maybe he had something wrong with that L eye in the first place.
Peregrine Falcons are the fastest flying of all the birds, reaching 200 mph, apparently. Have always wanted to see one, so today was very happy to have this opportunity.
