Davis, Kate

Author, educator, artist, wildlife rehabilitator, and taxidermist Kate Davis founded the nonprofit Raptors of the Rockies in 1988. The facilities house seventeen nonreleasable and falconry birds that serve as ambassadors in education programs and as models for Kate’s drawings, etchings, monotype prints, welded steel sculptures, and, lately, oil paintings. She is the author of Birds Are People, Too, American Kestrel, and Raptors of the West, all from Mountain Press. Kate loves her Nikon D700; she’s been a fan since her father got her hooked on photography as a kid. In every appearance she asks her audiences, young and old alike, to go outside and “hoot up an owl!”
