Artist's Description

Lorax, lives at the Cascades Raptor Center in Eugene, Oregon – She was found on the ground April 4, 2005 in Pendleton when she was about 3 weeks old, this bird suffered several fractures to the right wing, as well as damaging the elbow and wrist bones, when she fell from her very high nest. The fractures to the radius and ulna would have been difficult to fix in an adult bird and nearly impossible in a bird this young, whose bones are still growing. Any injury to or near a joint almost always results in loss of mobility, as the healing done by the body results in calcium deposits that inhibit motion. Because of this bird’s young age when coming into captivity, however, she is well socialized to people, which will minimize her stress levels.
Taken at the Cascades Raptor Center’s exhibit in the Lane County Fair grounds, Good Earth Home & Garden Show in Eugene, OR on 1/22/2010 with a Canon EOS 50D.
