Baby Barn and Great Horned Owls

Posted by thunsdorfer at Apr 22, 2012 11:20 AM |

April 22, 2012: The care center is looking after two baby owls, a Barn Owl with a laceration on its side and a Great Horned Owl that was removed from the wild unnecessarily – it isn't injured or sick. It's a good idea to review what to do if you find a baby bird, since many babies found on the ground aren't actually in trouble.

Great Horned Owl - Tinsley Hunsdorfer

Barn Owlet in Wildlife Care CenterThe care center is looking after two baby owls, a Barn Owl with a laceration on its side (right) and a Great Horned Owl that was removed from the wild unnecessarily – it isn't injured or sick. It's a good idea to review what to do if you find a baby bird, since many babies found on the ground aren't actually in trouble.

Staff and volunteers are trying to locate the Great Horned Owlet's nest so it can be reunited with its family. With the Barn Owl, we're taking things a day at time, but if it recovers and its siblings are still in the nest, mom will probably take this baby back in, too.
