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. 

JesseJesse, 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.

TillyTilly, 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.

LinusLinus, Red-shouldered Hawk. 

He is originally from a rehabilitation facility in MD, but was transferred from PA in 2015, where they were unable to keep him. He suffers from a wing fracture, which he sustained as a juvenile back in 2011. This is an injury to his shoulder that prevents him from being able to fly long distances and have full extension and use of his wing. 


AliceAlice, 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

Cyrus, Broad-winged Hawk
