SUNday Sharing

 Saturday scenes...

 6/22/2017  ::   Update on "Blue"
Today, the rehabilitator provided an update on "Blue", the young falcon that has yet to fledge. An X-ray was done and indicated that this bird's liver is underdeveloped. This may be the reason why it was so far behind in developing its flight feathers. At this point, releasing this young falcon at the Rachel Carson State Office Building is highly unlikely. Actually, there's no guarantee "Blue" will survive in captivity. Treatment with antibiotics is progressing well but only time and close monitoring will tell. "Blue" is scheduled for another X-ray in two months. If the liver issue stabilizes, then consideration will be given to "Blue's" future.

6/15/2017  ::   Update on "Blue"
Yesterday, the blue-banded falcon received an x-ray, and it was discovered the male has an underdeveloped liver, which may explain the slow growth and feather development. At this point, the final prognosis is unclear, the current plan is to continue observation to see if "Blue" can be returned to the wild or remain in captivity as an education bird.
 We start the WEEKEND when Mom got home from The GKP - she let us out and we went KHRAZY!

Oh look - it's Khousin Emmy - she wanted to let us know she hasn't vaporized YET -

Happy SUNday EvFURRYone!
