Uhu the Eurasian Eagle Owl
Eurasian Eagle Owls are one of the largest owl species on the planet. As with nearly all owl species, the females are larger than the males, which makes Uhu a VERY LARGE bird. These birds have a broad range across Europe and Asia and are the ecological equivalent to the Great Horned Owl in North and South America.
Uhu was hatched in captivity in the United States in 2011 and worked as an educational ambassador at a facility in Massachusetts. She came to the International Owl Center after that facility closed.
The International Owl Center advances the survival of wild owl populations through education and research. We plan to accomplish our mission through biological and cultural programs and displays, green building design, citizen-science and other research, international exchange of information, the World Owl Hall of Fame, the International Festival of Owls, and other means.
