This screech owl was found just sitting in the caller’s back yard in Marion, IN.  The caller was able to easily approach the owl.  She picked it up, put it in a box, and reached out to our call line.  She graciously offered to meet our volunteer in Roanoke, IN.  Our volunteer then brought the owl to our treatment center for examination. It was discovered to have damage to its left eye and may also have some injuries in its right eye.

 

The initial physical exam didn’t reveal any other injuries, but x-rays will be taken in order to be sure.
