Small Chick to Be Taken to Veterinarian
Over the past few days, it has become apparent that the smaller of the falcon chicks is not doing as well as the others. This afternoon, staff from the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries will be removing this chick from the nest box. The chick will be taken to a local veterinarian for triage. If/ when the veterinarian determines that the chick is in stable condition, it will be transported to The Wildlife Center of Virginia.
Please note: There will be a temporary disruption in the camera stream while our staff are out on the building ledge to retrieve the chick.
