Meet Our Education Birds
Meet our six educational birds: Julio, the Great Horned Owl, Ruby, the Turkey Vulture, Jack Sparrowhawk, the American Kestrel, Finnegan, the Peregrine Falcon, Hazel, the Northern Spotted Owl and Syd, the Red-tailed Hawk.
Portland Audubon's Wildlife Care Center provides a permanent home for several non-releasable native birds. Each of them came to us with an injury so severe that the birds would have been unable to survive in the wild. They now serve as ambassadors for their species and Portland Audubon in local classrooms and at events. The birds are listed above by species; click their species names to learn about each education bird and its physiology, appearance, behavior and more.
Sponsor a Wild Thing
Sponsoring one of these birds is a great way to learn more about the incredible creatures, while at the same time helping us meet their food, medical, and housing needs! In turn, these birds act as ambassadors for their species and for Portland Audubon, in classrooms and at events.
