Samson and Delilah - Great orned Owl

Name: Samson & Delilah
Species: Great Horned Owl; Bubo virginianus

Life History

Samson (left) and Delilah (right) were brought to the Bird Center prior to 2011 from a rehabilitation center in Northern Florida. Samson and Delilah both suffer from defects in their right wings, most likely the result of a collision with a moving vehicle. Both owls have two fully intact wings, but their non-functional right wings prevents them from being able to hunt and flee from danger on their own. Delilah is a bit larger than Samson, and she wears a pink band on her left foot while Samson sports a blue band on his left foot.
