When Griller feels up to it, his rehabilitators will move him to a large covered enclosure with enough room for him to fly. This will give them a chance to watch for any red flags concerning his flight, Schlecht said.
“Right now, he’s in a smaller enclosure that has a perch and an area for him to walk around in,” Schlecht said. “After resting we’ll want to give him more space to fly so we can make sure his flying endurance is still up to par. And at that point, we may also do a live prey test to ensure that he can still hunt on his own.”
