Jake was hatched in the spring of 2019 at a facility in Montana that specializes in breeding raptors for the sport of falconry. At 19 days of age, he moved to Florence, Montana, to join the education and falconry team at Raptors of the Rockies, headed by raptor educator and falconer Kate Davis. His baby photos are featured in Davis’s book Falcons of North America, which you can purchase in our visitor center.
Jake got off to an amazing start in education, recording 43 programs in a mere 6 months! However, he developed some health issues, and Kate believed the staff at Cascades Raptor Center could give Jake the care he needed to overcome them. He joined our team in February 2020 and has healed and thrived ever since.
