Rehabilitated Raptor Released

August 26, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Hawk

Teton Raptor Center released its 25th raptor back to the wild Thursday.  This was an immature female Cooper’s Hawk that had been rescued after presumably hitting a structure in Jackson – possibly a window or a fence.  The homeowners noticed the injured hawk and called Teton Raptor Center. Cooper’s Hawks have adapted to living in urban areas and are often seen hunting pigeons and doves, but the speedy birds can get in to trouble when they collide with human structures. Raptor Center Spokesperson Meghan Warren says people can reduce window strikes by hanging items outside the windows and being sure that bird feeders are located away from large windows.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
