Admission Date
Rescue Location
Cause of Admission
Broken beak

This young male Kestrel was picked up by Animal Care and Control in Grabill, IN . It had been caught in someones garage. We examined it to discover it had the tip of its beak broken off somehow. This makes it difficult for the bird to hunt and eat. We will need to keep this bird in our care until the beak grows back. Other than that the bird was in pretty good shape, a little thin from not being able to eat   07-04-21 This young feisty falcon is beginning to eat on its own
