Sedin was the first artificially incubated northern spotted owl chick to be hatched in the world in 2011. He is named after the Sedin twins, who were members of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team for many years and are much loved across British Columbia. He recently pair bonded with Amoré after four years together and welcomed their first chick in 2019. For adoptions, make sure to put "Sedin" in the donation message!
Bella was born at the NSOBP in 2017. This was the first year that two chicks were born at the NSOBP. Bella was not a fussy chick, which differed drastically from the other chick born that year, a male named Dante. She is the first born for Sally and Watson and pair bonded almost immediately with Jay in 2019. For adoptions, make sure to put "Bella" in the donation message!
Oregon arrived to the NSOBP from the wild in July of 2014 after a dramatic rescue. Field staff in Oregon state were monitoring a nest and days after locating the nest, the male was found deceased. As the male is responsible for bringing the female and their offspring food, it was decided that the chick must be removed from the nest to save both the female and the chick. Local arborists climbed the 200 foot tree as directed by Oregon state and BC provincial biologist and retrieved the chick. After a few months at a Cascades Raptors rehab centre the chick was well enough to make the trip up to Canada, where he joined our breeding population. Oregon is now pair bonded with our captive-born female Skalula. For adoptions, make sure to put "Oregon" in the donation message!
