Aurora, was found in November 1999 in Arizona. She had a ruptured left patagial tendon: the tendon that stretches along the top edge of the wing from shoulder to wrist. She has limited upwards flight. It is not known what caused the injury, but it is most likely to have come from hitting a fence or wire. Aurora joined the Cascades Raptor Center team in June 2000. As she has reached her senior years, many of her back feathers have turned white.
