In early November 2022, we received a call from the Gordon Hotel about a Red-tailed Hawk stuck in the grille of a vehicle. After 65 days in care, the bird, now nicknamed “Gordon”, was released at Mt. Pisgah Arboretum on January 5.
In June 2022, Cascades Raptor Center was the featured topic on McKenzie River Broadcasting’s Community Forums radio series. Bird Curator Kit Lacy and then-Deputy Director (now Executive Director) Julie Collins spoke with host Tracy Berry about our work with raptors, the center’s 30-year history, and looking to the future.
