Not only to honor former Raptor Release Coordinator, Brad Marsh, but this name also represents Barred Owls' preferred habitat of forests associated with water particularly marshes and swamps.


Marsh was just an owlet when found on the ground in Gualala as an orphaned nestling and brought to BRC for care during our first week of Baby Bird Season in 2020. On admit, he was a little dehydrated and underweight, but otherwise healthy. Under new Federal Fish and Wildlife laws, because they are an invasive species, Barred Owls are no longer to be released in the state of California, so we kept the little owl to raise in rehab with the hopes of placing into an educational program.


Once he was of age, we transitioned the little one to our resident program for training and socialization. It quickly became apparent that he captured the hearts of BRC staff and volunteers alike, so the decision was made to keep him for our own ambassador program. We know he will capture your heart too, just look at those eyes!


Marsh is a travelling Education Ambassador
