Barn Owl

Barn Owl

Not all of our animals are found and acquired from overseas. Sometimes they just arrive at our door step. This was the case of our two Barn owls that can be seen in our bird theater.

These two birds arrived at the park as very young owlets that had been found by a member  of the public.

Being too young to fend for themselves they needed the help of our staff to hand raise them. The first to voluntary to help these baby owls was our very own animal loving Amna. She very quickly took on the role as Owl mother and over the months cared for the owlets feeding them all though the night and making sure they ate enough to help them grow strong and independent. Amna had a special relationship with these birds that still is strong today enabling her to get close to these two birds any time she wants to. 

These birds thrill the audience every day in our bird show and enjoy a life of having to never worry about hunting for food and still enjoy their daily visit from their foster mother owl.
