Isle of Wight - Owl & Falconry Centre

7 June 2003

A visit to the Owl & Falconry Centre at Appuldurcombe House starts with some falcons...

Cherokee is a 3-year old Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus Leucocephalus) from North America. Bald Eagles have a wing span of up to 9ft.

A Snowy Owl (Nyceta Scandiaca)

Rosie is a Red Tail Buzzard (Buteo Jamaicensis) from North America

The red tail is now obvious
