Often mistaken at first look for a red tailed hawk, a young Swainson's hawk was recently admitted for care to Birds of Prey Northwest. He had lost 50% of his body weight and was near death when good Samaritan Mark Powers found him.The hawk has since responded to critical care treatment and will be moved to an outside aviary to continue recovery.Quick Fact: Swainson's hawks migrate to South America in the winter and because they eat grasshoppers, we are affectionately calling this patient "Grasshopper" while he is here!Posted by Birds of Prey Northwest on Wednesday, September 9, 2015

There was something amazing in store for Birds of Prey Northwest over the Labor Day weekend!
The gentlemen in the first picture collaborated for more than a year to surprise BoPNW on Sunday with a much needed replacement vehicle. From left to right: Greg Walmsley, president of Oxarc and donor of van, Artists Dave Govedar who first introduced us, and Keith Powell who donated the graphics of a golden eagle.
Thanks so very much! We can now transport patients and ambassadors in safety and security!

We provide medical treatment and rehabilitation to injured birds of prey with the ultimate goal of returning them to the wild. Our organization also collaborates with others on raptor research projects.
We are a non-profit organization and 100% of your graciously donated dollars and items go directly towards the care of these eagles, ospreys, falcons, hawks, and owls. Read more on our About page.
