Two admits on 31 October 2021 have moved from intensive care to flight pens! Both of these raptors were rescued in Woodbury County, Iowa.
The hatch-year female peregrine falcon is making flights to the high perch in her flight pen.
The 31 October 2021 rough-legged hawk is also reaching high perches and is making flights the length of the flight pen. Look at this hawk’s lower leg and you will see feathers – hence the name “rough-leg” as the legs are not smooth.
