KettlerGrymes Memorial School was host to "Kettler" a Broad-winged Hawk - [Buteo platypterus] and his trainer, Environmental Educator Quinn Robinson, from The Wildlife Center of Virginia on Thursday, April 22nd in the "Birds of Prey" Assembly. "Kettler" came to the Wildlife Center as a nestling in August 1988 after falling from her nest in Salem, Virginia and suffering a broken right wing. She was found at the base of her nest tree and taken to Salem Animal Control, which transferred her to the Wildlife Center for treatment. Due to the severity of her injuries, she never regained full use of her right wing and was left unable to fly.
