Meet the Owls
In Memory of Shakkai
On April 6, 2019 we were saddened by the loss of our matriarch Northern Spotted Owl, Shakkai, to old age.
25 northern spotted owls call the Breeding Centre home and they all have different backgrounds and personalities. Click here to meet some of them!
Natural History of the Spotted Owl
The northern spotted owl is a subspecies of the spotted owl, found on the West Coast of North America. Click here to learn about the spotted owl in the wild.
Breeding Season Timeline
Breeding Season begins in February when the owls start showing signs of breeding behaviour, and ends in June when the chicks fledge the nest.
The Role of Barred Owls
In addition to breeding the northern spotted owl at the Breeding Centre, we also breed their cousin the barred owl. Why? Find out here.
