Hans- Hans, a male Eurasian eagle owl, was hatched in 2013. The Eurasian eagle owl is native to Europe, Asia, and parts of Africa, but Hans was bred in Oregon to work as an educator.
Hans came to the ABEF several weeks after hatching and has been here ever since. He enjoys shredding enrichment and educating the public during programs throughout Southeast Alaska and parts of Canada. He interacts with visitors with low, raspy vocalizations and is often seen napping at the front of his aviary during the day.
