Ole- Ole, a peregrine falcon, was born in April of 2016 and came to the ABEF from Washington state shortly after. Ole was raised by humans to work as an educator and so develops unusual relationships with people. He will preen his trainers on occasion, grooming their hair and clothing with his beak.
Ole has met thousands of guests in his time as an educator, traveling to Skagway as well as the Yukon Territory for programs. During training sessions, Ole likes to sunbathe, stretching his wings out to warm himself in the sunlight. He also spends much of his day inspecting insects, birds, and guests who stop by his aviary.
