Evie the Gyrfalcon

Evie was hatched by a breeder in Washington in 2013 and was meant to work as a falconry bird. However, Evie had her own plan for her future and it did not include falconry or being a part of the breeding program. Since she had been imprinted on people, she was not able to be released. When it became clear that she was in need of a home that suited her more independent spirit, Chintimini Wildlife Center stepped in. Evie loves two things more than anything in the world: food and tennis balls. She loves to grab her tennis ball toy in her talons and bring it up to show off to her caretakers, loudly announcing her ‘capture’.
