Strix the Barred Owl

Strix is TRC's education ambassador barred owl.  Strix is one of the raptors that TRC Staff Interpretive Naturalist Kelly Scott is bringing to a program today. 

Our education raptors cannot be released back into the wild, but they are incredibly effective teachers, and great ambassadors for their wild cousins.

Kelly gave Strix a tidbit of food as a reward for stepping onto the perch. 
It is mounted onto the scale used for getting weights on the birds.
