The Riverbanks Zoo and Garden has put its newest baby on exhibit.
A young spectacled owl – the first born at the zoo since 2002 – will be on display in the Bird Garden across from the Bird Conservation Center near the Kangaroo Walkabout, the zoo said.
The 8-weeek-old bird hatched May 5. It is already as large as its parents but has white instead of brown feathers the adults have.
Spectacled owls have been on display at the zoo for 20 years. They are native to Central America through northern Argentina, although they are scarce in the wild, the zoo said. – From staff reports
