LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A baby falcon is back home with its mother on Friday after spending two days at the Humane Society in La Crosse.
Earlier this week, pedestrians found the baby falcon wondering around on Main Street, near U.S. Bank and Rose Jewelers. It lives on top of the U.S. Bank building.
A supervisor with the Humane Society said the falcon may have been pushed out of its nest by the high winds and storms this week. Although it's a pretty big fall, the falcon was not injured.
"It was learning how to fly so it was able to sustain itself til it made it to the ground without any injuries," said Kathy Kasakaitas, an animal control protection and rescue supervisor with the La Crosse Humane Society.
The supervisor said this happens every year and she expects to see more because this is a popular time for baby birds to leave the nest.
