Meadow the Northern Harrier Takes a Bath

Meadow is TRC's education northern harrier.  In this video you can hear the squeaking noise of a water bottle trigger being depressed to give her a mist bath. It is still too cold to have her take a bath outside but we can pretend we are having "April showers" indoors.  As you can see in the video Meadow is enjoying herself immensely! Here's to spring coming soon!

Meadow was found along the side of a county road near Ellsworth, MN. Her hatch year was 2008. When the clinic looked into her eyes they noticed lesions that are consistent with having West Nile Virus. This bird is blind in her left eye because of the virus.

We hope you come out to TRC to meet her soon!
