Archimedes was hatched in human care in 2000 for placement in a breeding program in Pennsylvania. Despite many attempts, he was never able to find a compatible female and was sent to Cascades Raptor Center to join the Education Team in February 2006. Archimedes is a visitor favorite and often greets staff and volunteers he knows with a “squeaky tire” vocalization, or excited hoo-hoo sounds.

Archimedes is enthusiastic for training sessions, knowing how to target to various perches, a trainer’s gauntlet, or the scale for morning weigh-ins. He’s also fond of his travel crate, often choosing to go inside even when no one is around to reinforce him with mice. After a training session, he rushes over to his human co-worker to accept his favorite ball, which he carries around his aviary in his talons or beak and caches in the corner for safekeeping.
