Move over Houdini, it’s time Tabitha took some of the limelight.
And she did at the 29th annual open house at the South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls (SORCO) recently.
The Western Screech Owl was the star of the show, being SORCO’s newest educational bird.
Houdini, a Great Horned Owl, is 17 years old now.
Pluto, a Burrowing Owl, also attracted a lot of attention with handler Tyler Brightman of the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC.
The one-day-a-year open house attracted approximately 2,000 people.
