I just wanted to let everyone know that I got the falcon back safely this morning. She spent the night in a tree at Dryden Lake. Thank goodness for telemetry.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Lost rehab Peregrine Falcon
I've been rehabilitating a female Peregrine Falcon that was picked up with all of her flight feathers broken off. I molted her and have been exercising her in the field, building up her strength. Today she went off soaring in the pleasant weather in a field near Ithaca, and I lost her. She has two radio transmitters on her, and I tracked her to a field near the Game Farm but then lost her signal. I picked up a signal about an hour later near the SPCA, but she was obviously flying around, and I lost the signal again. Unfortunately, I don't consider her to be quite ready to released, so I'd like to get her back and continue exercising her (stooping her to the lure, etc.).
Please let me know if anyone sees her. You can contact by email or call or text me at (607) 279-2516,
