LiveCam- Scarlet the Hawk

Scarlet

Scarlet is a female Red-Tailed Hawk who came to CEE in 2015 from a rehabilitator where she was recovering from a broken wing, probably because of being hit by a car. She did not heal with full flight, and as a result, is unable to be released back into the wild. As a member of CEE’s ambassador staff, she is continuing her training to be comfortable on the staff’s glove, as well as traveling to schools to help to teach children and adults about birds, predators, and their role in the environment around us.

 

LiveCam- Nyx and Icarus the Owls

Nyx and Icarus

Nyx is a female Barred Owl who came to CEE in 2013 after recovering from a wing fracture, likely due to being hit by a car or other vehicle. After rehabilitation, it was determined she would not survive if released into the wild, and instead came to us for a permanent home. She now travels to schools as one of our most popular wildlife ambassadors thanks to on-going training to be on the glove. Nyx shares her mew with Icarus.
 
Icarus is a male Barred Owl who came to CEE in 2013, also after recovering from a wing fracture, likely due to being hit by a car or other vehicle. Like Nyx, whom he shares the mew with, he is unable to be released back into the wild. He is trained to be on the glove, though still working on some of the steps, as one of our wildlife ambassadors visiting classes to help teach about owls and other nocturnal animals.

 

LiveCam- Ruby the Hawk

Ruby

Ruby is a male Red-Tailed Hawk who came to CEE in 2015 after a broken wing, likely caused by vehicle impact. Due to the broken wing, he has very limited flight and compromised balance, hence the ramps in his mew to help him get from perch to perch. He consistently pulls off his jesses, the leather straps put on a bird’s feet so that they can be taken out of the mew, so for now we do not have him wear them or take him out very often. We continue to train him so that he too can become an animal ambassador that visits our local schools.
