More About Lumi & Charming

Lumi and Charming are our two Snowy owls that reside at AppleCast.

Lumi was donated to us on the 1st of July, 2019. He was raised from six weeks old by one of our falconry pupils.

Sharing a unique bond between them, Lumi has a one-in-a-million personality – he is a very gentle bird that loves interacting with his bonded human.

Charming was brought to us on the 15th of July, 2020 by our newly hired falconer. Being born in May, he was hand-reared from 3 weeks old by our falconer. Charming is a cheeky little chap who always makes his presence known by honking at people who pass by

Both birds share a large aviary specifically designed for their breed. Naturally in the wild, Snowy Owls tend to spend most of their time on hummocks and boulders seeking out prey and watching for predators. Lumi and Charming tend to perch on the stones and logs in their aviary.
