Over on this side of the lawn, a menacing-looking female Auger buzzard perched on the gloved hand of Marsha Flamm, director of the Raptor House Rehabilitation Center in East Selah, which had provided most of the hawks, owls, kestrels and falcons for last Saturday's Kestrel Festival.
All day, Flamm
had made sure that curious onlookers at the festival -- in its ninth year at the Prosser winery named after one of the region's most colorful raptors -- had kept a respectful distance from two particular raptors, a great horned owl and this female Auger buzzard.Even tied by a tether to its perch, either might attack anything or anyone that got too close.Just a few weeks earlier, in fact, the female Auger had killed her
wanted to get on the nest," Flamm

was still working on the nest.
The pygmy owl came to Flamm

Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine has agreed to take the pelican, according to Marsha Flamm, executive director of the Raptor House Rehabilitation Center in Selah.
After the pelican's rescue by Yakima County
search and rescue volunteers and reserves, Flamm
took the bird to Dr. Christine Ramsey of the Selah Veterinary Clinic.
hoped the pelican would eventually be a permanent resident at a different sort of educational facility, perhaps the Woodland Park Zoo, Northwest Trek near Eatonville, Wash., or Blue Mountain Wildlife near Pendleton, Ore.
