2.Raptor Fact Sheet: What to do if you find a sick, injured or orphaned raptor

“When you drop a bird off at a vet, it is critical that you make sure you tell the staff exactly where you found the bird and under what circumstances. This is important for assessment and eventual release. Raptors tend to be territorial and on release, they must be returned to their home territory to maximise their chances of survival. If possible, leave your name and contact phone number (...).“

12.Birds of Prey: Health & Disease (Third Edition)

Published Online: 17 Dec 2007, Editor(s): John E. Cooper, Print ISBN: 9780632051151, Online ISBN: 9780470752319 Copyright © 2002 by Blackwell Science Ltd

"Raptor biology has evolved enormously since the publication of the original edition of this book under the title Veterinary Aspects of Captive Birds of Prey. With the help of leading international experts, John E. Cooper has updated and expanded this classic reference to include all the latest data on the health and diseases of raptors. While still serving the needs of veterinary surgeons who treat birds of prey, Birds of Prey: Health & Disease also appeals to a wide readership of falconers, avian researchers, breeders, rehabilitators and zoo staff.

Important changes to this new edition are the inclusion of data on free-living birds, additional material on fractures, pathology, legislation and poisons, and new sections on neonatology, health monitoring, captive-breeding and host-parasite relations."

13.Survival and Behavior of a one-footed Madagascar Fish-Eagle in the wild

Ruth E. Tingay and Michéle L. Clarke, Richard T. Watson and Russell Thorstrom, Loukman Kalavah, 2004

“Avian anatomical constraints (…) and species-specific foraging strategies (…) suggest that one-footed raptors have a diminished capacity for long-term survival in the wild. Here, we report the 7-yr survival, in the wild, of a one-footed adult male Madagascar Fish-Eagle (Haliaeetus vociferoides) and document his behavior and social status within a polyandrous breeding trio.”

16.Pinching Off Syndrome In Free-ranging White-tailed Sea Eagles (Haliaeetus Albicilla) In Europe: Frequency And Geographic Distribution Of A Generalized Feather Abnormality

“Generalized feather abnormalities are rarely documented in free-living birds. Pinching off syndrome (POS) is a feather abnormality in which all remiges and retrices become malformed and are lost during the nestling stage, rendering the bird unable to fly.”

Abstract:http://www.bioone.org/doi/abs/10.1647/1082-6742%282007%2921%5B103%3APOSIFW%5D2.0.CO%3B2
