Small Falcon Chick Has Died

  • June 5th, 2017

Unfortunately, we’ve received sad news that the small chick, which was removed from the nest on May 31st, has died. Although it had appeared to be doing okay since its removal and was eating, the chick was still losing weight and its blood work showed moderate anemia.

At the nest box, the other two chicks are progressing well in their development, appear to be healthy, and are being regularly fed by the parents. For more information on their progress and what to expect in the week ahead, please refer to our previous blog article in the nest updates.
