My wife Ruth went outside to visit family in Oregon this week. (For those readers not from Alaska, going outside is leaving the state). She meet up with her dad Forrest who lives in Vancover, Washington. He took her to visit Spritzer in Hawk Haven which is located 3 miles east of Estacada, Oregon. Spritzer was placed outside in Hawk Haven in October, 2004.
Spritzer is doing good. He's now waiting for his new mew to be completed. His beak is still showing signs of his wound from a gun shot and probably always will. Ruth says " He still likes to talk". From the report from Ruth it seems that he is in good company down there.
