This hatch-year 2017 peregrine falcon was a bit out of place walking in a cow pasture! She (?) is a bit thin and has a swollen right elbow and an abrasion on her cere. The cere is the fleshy part on the beak closest to the head. You can see the boo-boo in the featured pic.

The elbow appears to be working, and hopefully with more time in the flight pen, this peregrine will be ready to go in the spring.
