The Wilsons (Dunstable, MA) first brought their owls to Maine Audubon in 1999 and have come to Gilsland Farm annually since 2003. Their owl sanctuary is licensed to house up to 22 owls and they typically bring six to eight owls of different species with them when they come to Maine. Learn more at their website,
