ARGIE, Eurasian eagle owl
This male Eurasian Eagle Owl came to our Center on breeding loan from one of our partners to pair with our female, Dragon. Argie had been showing all of the signs of wanting to be a dad, he even helped raise an orphaned Red-tailed Hawk chick! These two birds were unsure of each other at first, but they bonded over their mutual dislike of the tractor and have been inseparable ever since. Dragon had been laying and incubating eggs for several years– but with Argie, they successfully raised their first chick together in 2017.
