Type: Eurasian eagle-owl – Bubo bubo
Hatched (approx): 2004
Feeds on: 7-8 chicks, alternating daily
Yaxley was brought to us in 2007 by a young chap who couldn’t handle or control him. The chap took away and Indian eagle-owl which had been out on displays and was much easier to handle. A few weeks later the young chap had to bring this one back too, but we appreciated his honesty and were happy to have it back.
Ater just a few weeks Yaxley had grown so much the lad barely recognised him. Hey loves to sit at the front of his avery, mainly waiting for his food!
