Sorry for you loss mate, what happend to her Sean?

To cut the story short she had a hard chase at a rook and landed up a 50ft fur tree and think she took a fit and was hanging upside down with her feet attached to the tree and I run up it to get her and got her down and was fine and then dropped down on the glove and then die ten minutes later as her sugar levels drop dangers low and just never recovered from it and passed away on my glove .

Fuuck man 😔

 

Is there a way to get sugars into the bird fast like a dog?

 

I know this may seem a stupid question but.... why would this happen after one course/flight/whatever? Surely in the wild they would have several hard hunts in their life.

Yeah you would have to syrige and crop tube it with glucose in water down the back of its neck and should give it the sugar rush.wild bird would get it from eating wild mice eg

And dehydration could cos it or low weight but that bird had plenty of fat on it .but I've heard of people fly and Gos all day and fed the bird up and getting ready to go home and the bird drop dead for no reason and have heard of a person recalling the bird to them and drop dead to when landed on the glove.
