Our Retirees

Goldie is a Harlan's Red-tailed Hawk.  At 26 years of age,

she is quite old for her species.  After retiring from her first career

with a falconrer, she spent another 4 years with AWBRC as an

education ambassador, wowing audiences with her gentle

demeanor and impressive attitude.  Her age has made it harder for

her to handle travel and programs, so she has retired to the Center,

being pampered daily by our volunteers.

 

 

         Zeke is a male Great Horned Owl.  He was injured in 2000,

already a full adult, making it impossible to determine his age. 

He began his career as an education ambassador with Bird

TLC in Anchorage,then transferred to AWBRC when

founded in 2006. His age is beginning to show, so he has

retired to a life of luxury at the home of his licensed caretaker.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taku-Blackbilled-magpie                        In Memory

Adieu, Taku.
 
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.
