San Diego Zoo wildlife
Some recently cataloged pictures of wildlife at the San Diego Zoo:
This last little beauty is my favorite today. It’s a Verreaux’s Eagle Owl (Bubo lacteus), also known as a Milky Eagle Owl or Giant Eagle Owl. It was rescued from the wild as an injured young bird and kept by the rescuers as a pet. Unfortunately, their rescue has resulted in human imprinting so the bird cannot be returned to the wild. It is serving out its life as an Ambassador of the San Diego Zoo, meaning that it goes to schools, seminars, and conventions to help people understand birds, raptors, owls, birds of prey.
