02172018 Eastern Screech Owl
Via volunteer Louie:
This evening the Soarin' Hawk call taker received a call from the Fremont Fire Department. A man had dropped off a grey phase eastern screech owl, saying it had hit the side of his car. I examined the bird and could not find obvious injuries. The keel was a 4. Wings, legs, feet, mouth and vent all appeared normal. Chad was the firefighter that called, he said the bird had improved since it was dropped off. "Probably had his bell rung," was how Chad described the owl. This screech will be transported to our facilities Sunday morning.
