Age: 1 day old
SBOIC introduces our newest ambassador owl, George. Or maybe Georgina! We won't know if the new owl is a male or female until we do a blood test, and the little owlet needs to be bigger before we can take a feather or blood sample.
George is only one day old in this photo, and will remain with his mom (Zeus) and his dad (Gale) for another five days before he becomes Saskatchewan's next star.
