Coo-Cooo! I do! I do! So much so that I adopted one!
Let me introduce you to the newest member of the Smith-Nelson clan although technically he doesn’t live with us. This is Trooper! He was born and raised at the Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre, hatching there in 2005.
Did you know? Maintaining owls in captivity can cost up to costs approximately $400/owl/year in food alone! Help a bird out!
Trooper was hand raised so that he could become tame enough to participate in the Centre’s educational programs, but at the ripe old age of 8 he’s recently retired and living the good life. I am hoping to meet him sometime next month!
Moose Jaw is a city that has a lot going for it in terms of tourism. In this month’s travel spread for Pink magazine, I go beyond the obvious hot spots and unearth some other gems found in this great southern Saskatchewan destination.
