Adopt Little Richard the Merlin




Little Richard, a Richardon’s Merlin, arrived at Hawks Aloft on October 17, 2014. He had suffered an impact injury that left him with head trauma and a left-eye injury. His left eye has since collapsed. ¬†Although he is permanently blind in that eye, Little Richard remains very lively and active! His animated demeanor keeps the Hawks Aloft educators on high alert while traveling with him. His name is a nod to Falco columbarius richardsonii, the scientific name of his subspecies. Little Richard loves Kiki and the rope perch in their mews.
