Bill falcon

Master falconer and club liaison, Bill Johnston, helped care and train a peregrine falcon for release in partnership with Tufts Wildlife Clinic and MassWildlife..way to go!

From Masswildife:  In October, a Peregrine Falcon was found in Lawrence with an injured foot and transported to Bernice Barbour Wildlife Center. Bill Johnston, a Master Falconer, then cared for and trained the bird using falconry techniques to help the bird regain her strength. At the beginning of this month, the bird was released back into the wild outside our Field Headquarters in Westborough.
