In the early hours just one year ago, an unidentified individual managed to circumvent a modest fence and infiltrate the Central Park Zoo. Upon gaining entry, they skillfully created a steel mesh enclosure opening, liberating Flaco, a regal Eurasian eagle owl.

What he was doing in his first freedom year?

During his free days, he is primarily up to hunting and sleeping, his observers say, but despite the fact that he isn't an entertainer, He has become a tourist attraction, being observed in Central Park and the whole of Manhattan.

Celebrity owl

Do we need more nature around us? Are just birds something we, as nonflying animals, will always be interested in? Despite not knowing the phenomenon, we can tell that birds, in general, can benefit from having a celebrity known in the human race. "Flaco may prompt people to pay attention to other kinds of urban wildlife," said Ted Floyd, the editor of Birding Magazine.
