Hey everyone,

It's been a while so thought I would post some more pictures of some of the birds of prey at OWL. The birds I'm posting pictures of is of our 3 new permanent birds that will be used for our Education Program where they go to schools and events educating the public about birds of prey.

The first bird is Betty and she is a female Great Horned Owl. Betty suffered multiple breaks in her right wing and it was dragging on the ground which was uncomfortable for her, so we had to partially amputate the wing (amputated at the elbow). She's a gorgeous but extremely powerful bird.

Here is Betty...

The next bird is Katie and she is a year old female American Kestrel. We don't know much about her but we do know that she's an imprint (been around people since birth). We think people kept her as a pet but were most likely keeping her in a very small cage because her wind feathers were broken and most of her tail feathers too. We also know she's an imprint because all she wants to do is be around people. Katie is only about 10 inches tall and is an absolute cutie-patutie.

Here is Katie...

And last but not least is Pygar who is a young Golden Eagle. Pygar also suffered multiple breaks but in his left wing so he had to get an partial amputation at the wrist. Pygar is a small Golden Eagle but he is still extremely powerful but very curious at the same time. He`s also a big wimp... just like our other eagle Sonsie.

Here is Pygar...

Ask your son if it was the owl man or owl lady. If he says it was the owl lady, it's me. The kids are awesome... I never get tired of showing kids and the public the birds.

Yep, Snoopy is still around. This will be the third year he's been with us and he goes to schools and events regularly... he's such an awesome owl! Here's a couple pictures of him.
