    I work downtown Chicago and had a very interesting day yesterday. When I was leaving work I noticed a small crowd outside of my building. I went over to investigate and there was a juvenile tiercel peregrine sitting on the sidewalk. Needless to say it was a bit of a surprise that I would run into this situation, so i began to figure out how to secure the bird without incident. The building manager was able to provide a towel and it ended up being pretty easy to get it under control. I do rescues for a group in Chicago when I can, so it wasn't new to secure a wild raptor, but I'm usually called out to this sort of thing. The odds of a falconer leaving at that exact time and place are next to nil, so I felt very lucky for the experience. I have taken the bird to the Willowbrook rehab facility and it should be just fine. Note: it is banded, so Willowbrook should be able to get it back to where it came from pretty easily.

    I have done many rescues over the past few years and most do not turn out well, but this was one that makes those times worth it. 

     As a falconer I recommend volunteering for raptor rescue as we already have to skills and lack of general fear to do the work. Just my $.02 Thanks, Mark White, Treasurer GLFA

    Meets:

    We just posted a meet for this weekend in Gilman. IL. 

    Website:

    The provider of this software now allows signing in with Facebook and Google credentials. This should make things a little easier to manage for your profiles.

    I have added a featured member section on the homepage. It simply crawls through the membership directory and displays your profiles. With the edition of the Facebook login feature it should bring your Facebook profile to our page.

    We have been seeing sign ups for the meet and banquet in February already. It is really shaping up to be a nice event.

    Thanks. I hope to see everyone this weekend.
