Spectacled Owl

Home E Owl E Griff


Our gorgeous Spectacled Owl, Griff, is one of our most handsome birds. He was hand-reared with Freddie, the Tawny Frogmouth, with whom he still lives.

They are a pair of characters who do enjoy interacting with people and spent many a happy hour terrorising the dogs when they were little.

Griff is either not the sharpest knife in the drawer or else he is a very profound thinker. Whatever the reason, he does appear to day dream a lot!! However he is a charming lad and very photogenic!
