Our Bird Families

Our feathered birds friends here at the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary are sure to astound you with their amazing beauty and engaging personalities. Who will grab YOUR attention?!

Tawny Owls – Tawny owls are found throughout Europe and are also resident in Britain. These owls are responsible for the distinctive twit-two noise people associate with owls. It is the females who make the twit noises while the males reply with two.

Goffin’s Cockatoo – Originally from certain Indonesian islands, these birds live in forest and agricultural land.


Conservation Status: Least Concern

Species: Tawny Owl

In 2012 we were joined by a little bundle of fluff, Darwin the baby tawny owl. Now fully grown, Darwin spends time between his aviary, taking part in lessons or with his handlers out and about in the Sanctuary meeting the visiting public.

Sam & Guedo

Conservation Status: Near Threatened

Species: Goffin’s Cockatoo

Our cheeky male, Sam, came to us in need of a new home after his private owner could no longer care for him. Guedo joined us from Dudley Zoo as a companion for Sam.
