This is a rescued female bird named "Pisces" at the African Bird of Prey Sanctuary. This awesome owl was found in a small cage in an animal facility in central Africa after apparently being there for "a very long time". She was brought to Lori Park Zoo in Johannesburg and then transferred to the Sanctuary.
