Meet Jack!

Out of over 60 names submitted, our Education Department staff unanimously decided on “Jack” as the new name for our Harris Hawk.

Submitted via our blog by ‘Anonymous’ Jack was suggested as a name because Harris Hawks love to prey on jack rabbits!

We would like to thank ‘Anonymous’ for this submission.  Unfortunately, we are unable to send Jack’s Adopt-a-Bird packet to the person who named him as we have no personal information.  However, if you named Jack, please send an email to, and we will get the information off to you!

Thank you again to everyone who participated in this endeavor to name our new Harris Hawk.  Keep an eye out for him at education programs, where he has started his career as an animal ambassador for World Bird Sanctuary.
