Max, a Peregrine Falcon, was hatched in 2016 in Olympia, Washington. At a very young age, he moved to Haines, Alaska, where he worked as an educational ambassador. He has traveled for programs all over southeast Alaska, and even internationally to the Yukon Territory, Canada. Max joined the Cascades Raptor Center team in April 2023.
Like most of the falcons on Cascades’ ambassador team, Max is a loud talker and can often be heard “ee-chupping” when he sees training staff. When not meeting guests, Max can often be found playing with his toys, and sometimes even brings them with him to training sessions.
