It has been a long time since there was an update on Beau. Is there any news on how he is doing?

He can fly short distances and he hunts his own prey in his and his ladyfriend's enclosure.  He's doing well by all accounts and from what I have seen from photos recently.  Next spring will be the time to really know how he's doing - if he has young, he's back up and running!  ;D   Seriously though - if he has young then he isn't adversely stressed to being back in captivity that he's unwilling or unable to do what he did in the wild.  Its a litmus test of sorts.  He seems to be getting along with his lady friend which is half the battle - Jules was a battle axe so likely he can get alone with anyone!!

Happy to hear Beau is doing well and catching his own prey. I'm curious, how large is his enclosure and if possible, could you post a photo of this enclosure, possibly with him and his lady friend in it?

Unfortunately not, the Centre he is in now is not a public facility - might be able to get a photo of his lady friend though ... will see what I can do ...

Thank you so much for the update on Beau, TPC! I am very glad that he is doing well. I hope he has a good sized enclosure. Is there still no chance that he could be releasable in time?

Not according to the vets, they say that though the wing is fine, the muscles were damaged in the fight and that they aren't strong enough to be able to support him in the wild. 

If he defies his medical prognosis, folks here will be the first to know!

If Beau has adjusted to his surroundings and is capturing prey, he is probably safe where he is now. Is there a chance for photos?

Thank you for the info, TPC! I am glad that Beau's wing has healed well. I know that when muscles, such as abdominal muscles, are damaged that it can take many months for recovery. I remember when Hera from the Woodmen nest had a laceration across her abdomen from a territorial battle, it took about five months for her to regain her flying ability. Of course, each situation is different.

Please do post updates when you can.

It isn't a public facility but I can ask ...

I was thinking of Beau recently. Have you heard anything about him recently?

He's fine last I heard - making babies last time I heard as well.  Will see if I can get an update on his activities since the spring ... last year he had four chicks I believe but will check that as well ...
