Dr. Robert Moore, Wildlife Conservation Society Veterinarian, assisted by Nancy Gonzalez, Senior Bird Keeper, and Shanna Hall, Bird Keeper, are readying Hedwig, a snowy owl at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo, for his favorite weather – COLD.
Hedwig received a talon trim, his regular inoculations, and a general check up. He is returning to his outdoor exhibit at the Birds of Prey with his brother, Harry, for the season.
The snowy owl is diurnal, and most comfortable outside in fall and winter months in the northernmost areas of North America.
The Bronx Zoo is open 365 days a year.
