Sadly, Taku, our education Black-billed Magpie, left us on Jan. 5, after suffering an illness that he couldn't overcome.
He gave six years of outstanding service as an education bird, and taught many people how truly amazing Magpies are.
He came to us as a juvenile in 2007, the victim of a dog attack that resulted in him losing part of his left wing. No longer able to fly, he could not be released back to the wild, but being a complete extrovert, he embraced his new career in education and enjoyed all the activity, new locations and faces that education programs provided.
Taku was cared for by devoted caretakers at their homes and volunteers at our center, all of whom fell in love with "the little guy in the tuxedo". He is he sorely missed.
