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.
Aldora, Red-tailed Hawk.
He arrived in 2001. He was injured as a first year bird on Christmas Day 2001. A car impact caused severe damage to his left eye leaving him permanently blind in that eye and the inability to hunt effectively. Aldora was the first member of our Education Team to be "glove" trained for raptor presentations. His name means "winged gift" in Greek.
Jesse, Red-tailed Hawk.
She came here as an adult in 1997. She was found on a golf course in Riverton, NJ. We surmise she was raised by humans and released while still a juvenile. She was caught by a falconer and brought to us. She does not get along with other red-tails due to imprinting, therefore she is housed alone. She is very interested in visitors and can often be heard vocalizing in her enclosure.
Shiva, Red-tailed Hawk.
In November 2015, a red-tailed hawk arrived at our Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital after an impact injury. She was brought to us by the man who accidentally hit her with his car as the hawk swooped down in front of the vehicle along the Garden State Parkway. This immature hawk was also dehydrated and quite emaciated which gave evidence to her lack of hunting skills. More than half of juvenile red-tailed hawks die from starvation during their first year of life.
After being placed in one of our flight enclosures for hunting lessons, we quickly realized that she was not successful at locating her food. A veterinarian determined that the hawk had lost the use of her left eye and is partially blind. She was then given the name Shiva, which means destroyer or avenger in Hindu because of her feisty disposition while in the wildlife hospital. Adopt Shiva.
Tilly, Red-shouldered Hawk.
She arrived here in 2005 from St. Francis Wildlife Center in Quincy, Florida. She suffers from a permanent injury to her wing. The injury is likely a result from a collision with a vehicle. She is unable to fly.
Alice, Cooper's Hawk.
Arrived in 2007 as an adult. She suffers from an improperly healed wing and ankle injuries. She cannot extend her right wing fully and has limited flight. She is very nervous around visitors.
Bradley, Cooper's Hawk.
He arrived at Cedar Run in June 2018. He was a nestling
that had fallen out of his nest and fractured his right wing; he also suffered
trauma to his right leg as a result of the fall. Unfortunately, the fracture in
his wing already had healed improperly and we determined he would not be able
Cyrus, Broad-winged Hawk.
She hatched in spring 2017
and arrived November 2017. She is from Squam Lakes Nature Center in Holderness,
NH. She was found on the side of the road by a wildlife control officer. She was
very weak and unable to fly. It was determined that she suffers from impaired
vision. It was first believed that she was hit by a car, but there was no
visible head trauma or other injuries. So, after extensive care it was decided
that she was most likely born this way. She was featured on an episode of
NorthWoods Law when she was found injured during the summer of her first year in
2017. She is being trained for use in
education programs. Cyrus is the Persian word for sun.
