Dumbledore, a Spectacled Owl, was captive-bred at the World Bird Sanctuary of St. Louis, MO for education. This species, native to Central and South America, gets its name from the feathers around its bright yellow eyes that look like spectacles. Adults have dark heads with white “spectacles,” while juveniles have white heads with dark feather masks. Dumbledore will help to educate and promote the importance of preserving biodiversity and the rainforest he comes from.
