Phoenix, our Osprey
Phoenix is a beautiful Osprey who joined HH&H as the newest Education Ambassador in November 2014. She is a female, as identified by the brown spotted necklace she is wearing. Phoenix, who used to be called Singe, was rescued from a fire by Wildlife Images in Merlin, Oregon. Singe suffered damage to her wings and feathers and lost her ability to fly with ease. She has now found herself a permanent home and has risen from the ashes! Phoenix loves salmon and trout and loves to tear the lips off her fish! Ospreys live by water as they are strict fish eaters and are found throughout our communities. We are dedicated to working with Phoenix to get her comfortable in her new role as an Education Ambassador.
Hover, our American Kestrel
Hover is a handsome American Kestrel who joined HH&H as an Education Ambassador in August 2014. He is a male, as identified by his striking blue-grey coloring on his wings and head. Hover is imprinted on humans, meaning that he does not know he is a Kestrel and would behave in a very un-bird-like manner in the wild. Hover's favorite food is a fat mealworm, but he likes mice and the occasional quail bits. He is quite the communicator, chattering every time we come near him. We continue to work with Hover to make him feel comfortable in his role as an Education Ambassador. HH&H has worked with Hover at several presentations where he is a favorite!
