The time has come for the Green Balkans Rescue Center team to perform routine bird examinations of the permanent residents of the Center.

These days it is the turn of the Common Kestrels of breeding pairs.

The procedures we performed were standard - examination, decontamination against internal and external parasites, nail and beak trimming. During all the manipulations, the right hand of the Centre's veterinary team specialists were students from Trakia University, majoring in veterinary medicine.

Future veterinarians had the opportunity not only to observe but also to do some of the manipulations themselves, of course under the keen eye of the Centre's veterinarians.

And while the prophylactic examination was underway, we used the moment to clean and disinfect the aviary of the birds in the yard.

So our Common Kestrels are already prepared in anticipation of the new breeding season!
