TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - The release of a recovering peregrine falcon found with an injured wing last fall in south-central Idaho has been delayed until spring.

Raptor biologist Janie Fink of Birds of Prey Northwest tells The Times-News (https://bit.ly/1dyfPAZ) that the immature male peregrine named Wiley by then will have 100 percent wing extension.

Wiley was found in October on the College of Southern Idaho campus in Twin Falls.

Biologists surmise he was on the way to Central or South America during the fall migration when he clipped an electrical line or collided with a vehicle.

Officials plan to release Wiley from the college’s campus when he’s fully recovered.
