Sovereign, a male Peregrine Falcon, was transferred to Flint Creek Wildlife from the University of Illinois Wildlife Medical Center where he was being treated for a fractured scapula. His right wing is completely fused and he is Flint Creek Wildlife's most physically challenged birds. Sovereign is completely non-flighted and his cage at Barrington is adapted to his special needs.
All of Flint Creek Wildlife's educational animals are non-releasable due to the nature of their injuries. In other words, animals that cannot survive in their natural habitat because of their injuries have been given a second chance at Flint Creek Wildlife - educating the public while living out their natural lives.
