Griffin arrived at Grandfather Mountain in March 2013. He was living in the wild in Nebraska when he suffered a severe trauma to his head leaving him blind in his right eye, deaf in his right ear and with some neurological damage. Due to his injuries he was unable to successfully hunt for food and became extremely emaciated. He was taken to the Raptor Recovery Center in Nebraska where he was rehabilitated. Because of his inability to find and catch food, Griffin could not be released back out into the wild. He became one of the first residents to call the newly renovated eagle habitat on Grandfather Mountain his home.
After some adjusting, Griffin has settled into his new home well. In the beginning he wasn’t sure if he was going to like having so many humans around him all the time but he seems to have settled in very well. Occasionally he even seems to like the company of his keepers. Griffin is shy when it comes to meal time and tries to wait until no one is around before eating his meal of fish, quail or rabbit. If someone catches him eating he often gets a startled look on his face and starts frantically looking around for a place to hide. Griffin spends most of his day people, squirrel or bird watching from one of his two favorite perches in his habitat.
