Orion, bald eagle.
Came to Cedar Run in 2000 as an adult. He
suffered from a collision with high tension wires in Jaspar, Wyoming. He was
cared for at a wildlife rehabilitation center and determined to be unreleasable
due to his severe wing injuries and blindness in his right eye. Orion likes to
spend most of his time perched on the ground or a low log. He can be shy around
visitors, but quite vocal if you listen carefully.
Hallie, bald eagle.
Hatched in 2004 and arrived in 2005. She came
to us from Wyoming and was found at the base of a tree. She had been attacked
and injured by crows when she was a nestling. She was deemed non-releasable due
to impaired flight. It was interesting to observe her as she matured and her
dark head and tail turned white over the course of four to five years. Hallie is
usually sitting on the highest perch and can often be heard vocalizing.
