Hello my name is Nelson, I am a UK captive Bred African Barn owl, I am quite rare with only 2 or 3 breeders in the UK. As I am African I was named after Nelson Mandela, also I spend most of my day sat on a java wood tree stump which we call Nelson’s Column. I hatched on 31st July 2011 and been hand fed from very young age therefore human imprinted. I live in the shop where I have a double stand with a large flight which I use overnight. I regularly go to schools to visit the children where I love to be handled.
