Captain Jack
Barred Owl (Strix Varia)

2 Years Old


Captain Jack was hit by a car in North Carolina which deflated his right eye. Jack does very well on the glove, and can see well out of his left eye.  He is an extraordinary education bird. His favorite perch is the ring perch which allows him to sit waist high to a human and still jump down and fly a short distance. 


Allison Woods Outdoor Learning Center mimics Jack's diet in the wild. His favorite is mice! 


Jack came to us from Cape Fear Raptor Center
