It's always good to hear a happy ending. But what the article you linked to doesn't go into is how many falcons/hawks are injured each year, and what percentage of these are actually rescued, and on top of this how many of these rescued birds are able to be rehabilitated and released. Sadly I'm sure those figures aren't so rosy.
