Farewell, Good Friend

I wish farewell to one of my oldest friends, and one of my greatest teachers - Dusty the Barn Owl. He was one of the first raptors I worked with, and what he taught me cannot be equalled. He passed away today. He came to Como Zoo in 1990 - it is believed to be his hatch year, but he could have been older. I started working with him in 1997, and hope that I gave him even one small part of the joy that he gave me by being in his presence.

We will miss you, good friend. Be at peace and know that you were loved in your time here with us.
