Critter Cam 2

You are watching Owlet Cam, featuring the Center's non-releasable surrogate dad, Papa G'Ho, and three young Great Horned Owlets.  This family is housed in one of the Center's largest flight pens. The owlets are growing in their feathers and learning how to fly; Great Horned Owl babies are typically released in the early fall. 

You are watching one of the Center's education raptor ambassadors: Buddy the Bald Eagle, Maggie the Peregrine Falcon, or Hudson the Gyrfalcon.
