Alina - Merlin Falcon

Alina was found in Holly Hill, Florida and brought to us in 2013 from another facility as an immature female. She was diagnosed with a severely fractured right elbow. The fracture healed, but she did not gain full extension of the injured wing. As a result of her limited flight capability, she could not be released.

Amelia - Peregrine Falcon

Amelia was found badly injured on a cruise ship in the Atlantic during her first migration south in the fall of 2015. This young Peregrine Falcon was brought to shore in the Melbourne area and transported to the Center for care. She suffered from starvation and spinal trauma, causing paralysis. With extensive treatment and rehabilitation she has been able to regain some of her movements but remains permanently disabled and non-releasable. She was named after the aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart.

Lance - American Kestrel

American Kestrels are the smallest bird in the Falcon family, and unlike most birds of prey you can tell the males from the females by thier coloring. Lance came to us in January 2016 after being kept by a human as a pet when he was young. Unfortunately, it was found that he had a fractured wing and pelvis which left him unable to properly thrive in the wild. This pelvis injury results in Lance’s tail feathers tucking under instead of in line with the rest of his spine.

Susie - American Kestrel

American Kestrels are dimorphic meaning you can tell the males from the females by thier coloring. Susie is a female who was rescued in 2017. She was found with two fractures in her left wing, that didn't heal well enough for her to be returned to the wild. If Susie isn't offsite teaching children about raptors, she can be found on the porch of the Audubon House.
