Piper is a male American Kestrel who hatched in 2000. He was turned into a local rehabilitator who sought a home for him. Soon after, in June 2005, he came to the CPF. Because he is a human-imprinted bird, he could not and cannot be released to the wild and so the CPF welcomed him to its educational team. Piper is a little on the smaller side, perhaps due in part to nutritional deficiences in his diet during the first years of his life. At the CPF Raptor Centre, Piper resides in a specially-designed pen that affords him a luxurious amount of room for a bird his size. Piper has adjusted very well to his new life and surroundings and CPF volunteers enjoy watching him and spending time with him very much.
