Cooper’s Hawk (retired)
Alice was in her first year of life when she was brought to Tamarack. She was found on a farm in Cochranton, unable to fly because her wrist bones of one wing had been severely damaged. Cooper’s Hawks have short wings and long, ruddering tails that allow them to dart quickly through branches in a forest to pursue their prey of small birds.
Alice has been helping Tamarack volunteers with education presentations since 2003. Formerly named “Spaz Bird” due to the high-strung attitude of most Cooper’s Hawks, she is now called Alice. As a geriatric bird, Alice is now retired and no longer goes off site for programs, but can be viewed in her aviary for programs and tours scheduled onsite.
