Juvenile Merlin with a Headache

Juvenile Merlin with a Headache
I found this little fellow unable to fly after what we suppose was an unfortunate encounter with a plate glass window. I boxed him up and we found a raptor rehabilitation center. He had a concussion so they put him in a hyperbaric chamber then kept him until his baby feathers were gone. The sign of a concussion is how wide his irises are even with a bright light shining on them. Look carefully and you will see.
