Alfie is our Great Horned Owl, he was hatched in May 2010. Great Horned Owls are native to North America and in the wild their plumage varies depending on the habitat, i.e. different types of woodland. In the wild they would take small rodents, rabbits, hares, armadillo and racoon. They have also been known to take domestic cats. The tufts on the top of his head are a mood indicator, so when they are up we know he is happy!
