Garbo – Barn Owl

Your generous donation to our Guardianship project helps provide food, housing, care and medical treatment for these amazing birds!

Garbo came to us in 2004 with defective flight feather growth. Without proper feathering, she was unable to maintain the silent flight BNOWs need to hunt and thrive in the wild. Now that Garbo is at least 15 years old (5 times the average wild lifespan!), some of her favorite past times are sleeping. During a warm, quiet day on the glove, you can often find Garbo fast asleep on her handler’s fist.

Garbo’s Ambassador Anniversary is July 10, 2004.
