Explore Wild Bing, Just Owls and more!

My family rescued a baby barn owl when I was a kid. He fell from a nest in the rafters of an old cotton mill. We took him to the Carolina Raptor Center in Charlotte, where he grew into a healthy adult -- save for a constant head-cocking tic. Needless to say, they did not release him into the wild. He became one of their beloved mascots.
