Chewbacca (aka Chewie)

Eurasian Eagle Owl
Admission Date

Lovingly called Chewie by our volunteers, Chewie came to us from Deron Meador, a falconer from Maryland.  Chewie was 9 weeks old at the time.  He wasn’t able to fly yet and had a bunch of downy feathers.  With in 2 months, he lost his downy fluff and has all of his adult feathers and he loves to fly!  He was trained at a volunteer’s home for a few months until he was old enough to move to Soarin' Hawk. His gorgeous orange eyes are the first thing everyone notices about him.  He’s a wonderful bird and you’ll be impressed when you meet him!  He currently weighs just under 5 lbs and has a wingspan of about 6 feet!
