'Enriching the lives of birds and people'
Roo (Boobook Owl)
Date of hatch: May 2018
Temperament: Energetic, a nibbler and a bit of a diva
Roo, named after Australia's kangaroo, is our youngest and most excitable of all our birds. He is always eager to get going, impressing everyone with his hawk-like flight being quick and agile.
He is currently learning how to refine his agility into a skill he can really show off. He is also great at being handled and loves to meet new people.
Did You Know?
