Hatched in 2011 and arrived in 2012 (red morph). Found in Marlton, NJ, she suffered from a left wing fracture due to an impact injury. Her flight is too impaired to be released and she can only get about 3 feet off the ground. She is also an Education Team member.
Hatched and arrived in 2016 (gray morph). She suffers from almost complete vision loss (cause unknown). Her name means “sight/seeing” Arabic. She is also an Education Team member.
He arrived here is 2004 (gray morph). He became blind in his right eye after a collision with a vehicle. He suffers from a detached retina and neurological condition. He leans to his left and has limited depth perception and therefore would not be able to hunt successfully. He often hides within the hollow log on the large shelf. He is best viewed through the entrance door. Screech-owls can be red or gray in the same clutch.
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.
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.
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.
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.
He was born early 2015 and arrived May 2015. He came into the hospital as a fluffy owlet. He was found on Ramblewood Golf Course with injuries to his left wing. Presumably he had fallen from his nest. After months on the hospital it was determined that his wing injury prevented his release. He was given the name Rambler after the golf course.
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. Duster is a retired Education Ambassador.
