Newton

Type of Animal: 
Raptor
Specific Species: 
Barn Owl

Newtons’ Story:  Captive bred in 2002, Newton joined our group as our first owl.  He is a delight to have around.  He is an imprint. And demonstrates the accurate hearing that owls use to locate prey.  Barn owls are even able to locate mice under six inches of snow by listening to the heartbeat of the mouse. You can invite barn owls to live on your property or neighborhood by putting up nest boxes for them. Then you will have natural 24-hour rodent control
