Adopt Flash the Peregrine Falcon
Meet Flash, our newest Avian Ambassador! He’s a Peregrine Falcon that came to us from the Santa Fe area with a wing injury. At first, we hoped he would be releasable! Matt Mitchell, our in-house falconer and rehabilitator, took him on to work on his flight and hunting skills. Sadly, while Flash can fly, he cannot fly well enough to survive in the wild. Now, he will join our team of avian ambassadors, visiting classrooms during our Living with the Landscape educational programs in the future.
Why Flash? Each of our educational birds is given an educational name that is short, easy to remember and tells something about the species or the injury that caused the bird to be non-releasable. What might be better than “Flash,” for the fastest bird in the world?
