This video was produced by the American Bird Conservancy. We have chosen to post this video instead of producing our own, as it tells the story of what we, too, deal with on a daily basis, especially during the critical and vulnerable baby season. Our treatment protocol mimics all that is seen in this video.
This Western Screech Owl was found in the middle of 8th St. near Foothills Learning Center. Other than appearing a bit stunned, this lucky owl had no injuries and after 24 hours and a flight test; it was released back in the area it was found. It immediately flew and landed on this large tree so it could give it’s rescuer/releaser, ‘the ol’ stink eye’. We are so happy this story had a happy ending!
