Freddie is quite a character! He is not an owl but a bird from Australia known as a Tawny Frogmouth and has a place among our collection as he is a carnivore and was actually thought to be a kind of owl many, many years ago. He is actually more closely related to the Nightjar family which are also found in the UK.

He was raised with Griff, a Spectacled Owl, and they are devoted friends!

Freddie loves to sit on your shoulder and go for a walk. He is very affectionate and will stay with you all day!
