After a couple days of feeding, this healthy guy was re-nested with another family group.
A not so good Mother’s Day for two pre-fledgling Great Horned Owlets!

Two Great Horned Owlets came into us on May 8th.   One of them was very thin and had a deep puncture wound in the side of his head and ear area which was infested with maggots.  They had already started feeding on the live tissue.  Unfortunately, this little guy had to be euthanized, but its sibling was re-nested with another family group.

Sadly, this little guy was too far gone to save.
