Say Hello to "Hoot" - our wee little Great Grey Owl, born on May 2nd, 2020.
We think that Hoot may be a girl, but a bit more time is needed to be sure. But, we'll say 'her' for now :)
Hoot had a long journey from Quebec last week - Hawkeye's Dan Frankian went to pick her up - at the tender age of 3 weeks. A week in, she appears healthy and well adjusted.
We have big plans for Hoot: She will be the new star at our Falconry Experience. The Falconry Experience allows non falconers an opportunity to meet birds of prey up close and personal. It is as much a day of learning as it is about action. At the end of the day, participants will be able to fly a bird of prey (usually one of our Harris Hawks) to and from their arm. We hope that Hoot will grow up to love her role as ambassador for all owls.
We will also be posting video updates on Hawkeye's YouTube Channel - here's a sneak peek:
