Flight Enrichment for Whisper the Barn Owl

As you've read from some of our past posts, we work with our winged ambassadors on ways to keep their minds as healthy as their bodies.  Our staff designs enrichment opportunities for the birds, that do require training for them. 

Because of the colder temperatures, Whisper the Barn Owl has not been outside in her mews.  Interpretive naturalist staff member Molly Gezella-Baranczyk has been working with Whisper indoors.  Since Whisper is an imprint, and does not have physical disabilities, one enrichment we are training her to do is to learn to fly to different points to receive her food.
