Brown Wood Owl joined Jim Ades Raptor Sanctuary
In 2018, Strix the Brown Wood Owl was seized by the Authorities as part of an illegal possession case. She was cared for at the KFBG Wild Animal Rescue Centre during the legal investigations. During her health check , Strix was found to have minor feather damage and it was noted that she was very friendly and had probably been hand-reared.
The Brown Wood Owl is a recent addition to the local resident bird fauna due to range expansion in southern China. The species has successfully brew in Hong Kong for several years.
