Yes, after not having but one baby GHO last year this is number four so far in 2014. He was found inside a shop at the Redi Mix plant in Powell. His mom has her nest way up near the top in an opening which would be difficult to reach. And because of the heavy traffic on the road I decided to bring this baby here and put him with the other two already in residence. He's a bit younger but that shouldn't make any difference. When they're all ready for release I'll probably do that at the same time just as they would in the wild.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
