A Barn-Owl eating a freshly caught mouse, thrown to him by the bird-handlers at “Raptor Domain”, Kangaroo Island.
Dave Irwin and his amazing collection of birds provide an entertaining, educational and interactive experience suitable for the whole family. During the free-flight presentation, marvel at the natural hunting abilities and amazing physical adaptations these spectacular birds of prey posses. Meet an array of interesting birds including Jedda the majestic Wedge Tailed Eagle; Casper the friendly barn owl; and laughing kookaburras Banjo & Clancy, plus many more.
