We've had our first casualty of 2017 - the third of the three female chicks we banded at Logan.  She was very happily sitting on the ledge next to her brother when the wind picked up and she and brother tucked down to get low and little brother was okay but she rolled right across the ledge and over the edge.  She broke her leg (haven't had one of those before) but so far everything else looks okay.  She's off to the vet for a full exam, x-rays et al.  From that they will decide on what to do for her leg and we go from there.

I hope her leg heals and she's okay to be released later.  Poor baby, she'll miss going south with her siblings.  :'(

Oh, no!  Sad news?
What happened after the vet check?

Chick had additional injuries that would take time to heal beside the leg but it was when they went to repair said leg they found serious damage to her tendon which repairing the break wouldn't have been able to help.  Any one thing individually (except the tendon) the chick could have overcome with luck but her chances were greatly reduced and the outcome because of the tendon was grim.  Deciding factor was the poor quality of life this chick would "enjoy" IF it survived surgery and all the recovery afterwards.  The right decisions are mostly the hardest to have to make. 

On a more optimistic note, her siblings are ready to fledge and they are showing some real smarts when the wind today blows in puffs and gusts at the nestsite.  I think it was just poor timing - a few days older and she'd have figured out how better to brace herself against the wind, a few days earlier and she'd have still be hanging out in the nesttray and on the lower roof.
