Spectacled Owl

Pulsatrix perspicillata

We currently have two Spectacled Owls - Mr Jangles, who hatched in 2014, and Costa, who hatched in 2016. Both of these owls are fantastic flying and display birds; both of them will fly at our centre, on experiences, at shows, schools and other events. Both were hand reared and think of their handlers as their parents, so call to us just as baby birds would call to their parents in the wild!
