Falco mexicanus
Human Imprint - stolen from the wild
Came to Nature's Educators from the Pueblo Raptor Center
Nike was taken illegally from the wild as a hatchling and cared for (improperly) in someone's private home for a couple of weeks. Luckily, wildlife officers found out and she was moved to the Pueblo Raptor Center where she was deemed unreleasable due to imprinting.
