Stare Down


I recently had the pleasure of meeting Cricket, an Eastern Screech Owl (Megascops asio). Based on his expression, he may not have been as excited to meet me. Cricket was brought in to ARK with an injury that was irreparable, so he is now a permanent resident. Cricket earns his keep by serving as an educational ambassador, traveling to schools and appearing at special events.
