The World Bird Sanctuary rescued this female Egyptian Vulture from an exotic animal dealer. She spent the next eight years in their breeding program. After the death of her mate, she came to Hawk Creek. At the time of her arrival, she was one of only six Egyptian vultures in the country. She is extremely intelligent, and her species is one of the few birds of prey that uses tools to attain a goal. A prime example of this is their use of a rock to break open an egg.
