Celilo came into human care from the wild in Nebraska in early 2002. She was just beginning to get her pure white head and tail at the time, so it’s estimated that she was around 4-5 years old. After spending her early life with an education organization in South Dakota, she came to Cascades Raptor Center in 2010.

Celilo is an enthusiastic participant in her training sessions, as well as a creature of habit. After receiving food from her trainers, she always heads straight to her bath to clean her beak and talons.
