Co-founder John Halverson and Icarus the great horned owl visit with guests at the 2014 Earth Day Celebration. Icarus was an adult owl that experienced some sort of trauma, which caused the right wing to be amputated at the wrist joint. She was found by a rancher and lived free in his barn for a year and a half, feasting on rodents. When she found the chickens in their coop, she was brought to us. With permission from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, she was trained to be an avian ambassador for all owls. We do not know her age.
