Amazon fell from her nest at about one month of age in June 1995. She broke both her wings and wasn't found quickly. Her right wing healed perfectly, but the left wing, which had an open fracture and other complications, did not. Her injuries left her incapable of flight. She has been an amazing contribution to the Cascades Raptor Center education team. Amazon enjoys a multitude of enrichment items (canvas footballs, over-grown vegetables and her dog toy stuffed with llama wool). Using her powerful talons, she destroys her enrichment items and keeps volunteers and staff busy finding new and interesting items that meet her needs.
