Amelia's STORY:

Amelia is a female American kestrel (Falco sparverius) who came to us in July 2018 after being brought in by a client who found her on the ground. It is suspected that she flew into a tree and was stunned. Upon further examination, we realized she was missing her right eye which we believe is the result from a previous injury that caused her eye to recede back into her skull. While she is able to fly, her lack of right eye does not provide a suitable condition for her to be able to live in the wild. As such, she joined the WSU Raptor Club in October of 2018.
