Squam, barred owl.
2002 from Hawk Creek, a wildlife hospital in Aurora, New York. He suffered impact
injuries so severe that he was left comatose and blind in his left eye. Nursed
back to health, Squam’s injuries prevent him from being released. Fortunately,
his especially calm and agreeable temperament make him an ideal bird for our
Hoo-dini, great-horned owl.
He hatched and arrived in 2010. Found on the ground below his nest as a fledgling, Hoo-dini suffered a fractured left wing. The wing never recovered and he joined our Education Team where he gained his name after "escaping" from his equipment during training.
Athena, great-horned owl.
She arrived in 2011 (age unknown). Found in Haddonfield, NJ, after a vehicle impact, she was left with a permanently injured left wing and has little to no use of that wing. Athena, named for the Greek goddess of wisdom, is currently training as an Education Team member and can occasionally be seen at programming.
Bubba, great-horned owl.
She was rescued in 1990 after she became tangled in a soccer net at Allen School in Medford. She suffered a serious injury to her left wing in the process of trying to escape. Despite intensive veterinarian efforts, the wing was not able to be saved. She has limited flight, but manages to climb on the long logs with amazing nimbleness and balance. She is our oldest resident great-horned owl.
Ashley, great-horned owl.
She arrived in 1994 with a severe eye injury and neurological damage. The injuries were most likely sustained during a collision with a vehicle. She was deemed non-releasable due to her inability to judge distances. She also survived from a West Nile Virus infection while she was here.
Duster, barn owl.
Hatched in 2008. Being a species of special concern in NJ, Cedar Run acquired the young barn owl through proceeds collected in a fundraising effort. He was named for his most frequently displayed "toe-dusting” behavior; communicating that he feels disturbed or threatened.
