Everett – American Kestrel

Resident: July 2008 – July 2021

Everett was a male American kestrel (Falco sparverius) who came to the WSU Raptor Club on July 29th, 2008 from Cat Tales Zoological Park. He was unable to fully extend his left wing. Everett had dislocated his left shoulder and that injury left him unable to fly, so he could never be released back into the wild. While we don’t know exactly what injured him, it’s suspected that he was hit by a car.

Everett passed away in July of 2021, at the age of 17.
