Two injured fledglings from a peregrine falcon nest in Reston are expected to make their way back to their home soon after taking a tumble during last week’s storms.
A smaller male was blown of his nest at the top of a building during storms two Fridays ago and the larger female hit a window, fracturing her coracoid bone.
The fledglings were taken to Wildlife Vet Care, an organization launched by wildlife veterinarian Belinda Burwell to provide veterinary and rehabilitative care for sick and injured native wildlife in the area.
“We hope to have both released and returned to their parents soon,” the organization wrote in a social media post.
The organization did not return multiple requests for comment.
Reston Town Center has been home to peregrine falcons since two chicks were found on Market Street in 2015.
A poll to name the birds, kicked off by FFXnow’s sister site Reston Now, resulted in some controversy when the second place winner — the names Robert and Anne — were chosen instead of the overwhelmingly popular pick of Free and Parking.
The names referred to Reston Town Center’s shift from free to paid parking that began in 2017.
