Juvenile Peregrine Injured
A dose of bad news early this afternoon – Richmond Animal Control responded to calls of a grounded peregrine falcon near Two James Center in downtown Richmond at 12:30 pm. The bird was transported to a local veterinary clinic with wildlife experience, where it was confirmed to be the juvenile with the yellow-taped band. A preliminary exam revealed that the left eye was injured and that the tip of the upper bill was missing. The bird will be transported to the Wildlife Center of Virginia. We will post updates as they become available.
