Northern Saw-whet Owl Training Part Two

Our Northern Saw-whet Owl is being trained to travel in a crate to meet the public.  Here, her primary trainer Laura Freeman rewards her with a tidbit of food as she learns that the crate is a comfortable and safe way to travel. 

It is important that our feathered education staff members are comfortable with their human co-workers as well as the details of their "jobs" as ambassadors.  The staff works very hard to slowly introduce new things and give the birds time to acclimate. 

This Thursday, August 23, we will start our contest to suggest names for this bird!  We will post information here and on our Facebook page.
