Gulliver's Babies is a children's hardback storybook about a Great Horned Owl who was brought into Avian Reconditioning Center (ARC) in 1986 with a broken wing she suffered from falling out of her nest.  Although Gulliver recovered, she had already imprinted on people and could not be released back into the wild.  After 10 long years at ARC, Gulliver fostered her first baby owls from eggs to being freed back into nature.  In the past 19 years, Gulliver has helped raise more than 200 owlets.
