Jet grounded Saturday

Jet (66/H) was found on the ground early Saturday morning. The county wildlife officer was called. She appeared OK but to be on the safe side she was taken to a wildlife rehabilitation center where she spent the remainder of the weekend resting. There was no sign of trauma or bruising so we think she probably just had a couple of missed landings and got flustered and/or tired and ended up on the ground. We plan on putting her back out in familiar surroundings (the nest ledge) later this afternoon to give her another chance.

A juvie was on the ledge last evening and this morning but no band number was able to be confirmed. So far assuming all is well with all of the others.
