This peregrine falcon was noticed on the finders farmyard and they called their conservation board director for an assist! The Lyon County Conservation director was able to rescue and helped transport to Alex at HEART the Wild in Sioux County. She has a wound on her backside, left. Hard to say what happened, but because of the blistery nature of the wound we suspect electrocution. Thanks to Tyler for helping transport to SOAR. Also thanks to the finder for the photos.
