Meet Bubba the Bubo Virginianus

Earth Day

Hunter Schultz and Travis Kim from Carnegie Mellon’s Children School check out a 3-week-old great horned owl (bubo virginianus) named Bubba on Earth Day. The College of Engineering and the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research hosted “Flying High and Heels on Wheels,” an exhibit of birds of prey and a kickoff to a bicycle challenge to help the Pittsburgh region escape rising fuel prices by pedaling to work.
