"Errol" - barred owl
Why the name?
Errol was named by the great folks at Alexandria Emergency Vet who adopted him through our Adopt-A-Raptor program.
Arrived in Fall 2014.
This Barred Owl was hit by a car in Fall 2014. He is completely blind in his right eye and only has partial sight in his left eye, so he could not be released.
Errol is an excellent education bird and comfortable with his handlers. Barred owls are one of the mostly commonly heard species in the area, and we love to share the identity of the mysterious "Who, Who, Who Cooks for You?" owl.
Errol looks soft and cuddly but those talons mean business - when he gets home to his enclosure, he's the boss! :)
