03112021-Eastern Screech Owl-1
Ryan was out for a walk when he saw this Eastern Screech Owl sitting on the side of the road.
He called our rescue line and very graciously offered to bring it to our treatment facility. After examination, it was discovered to be healthy except for open cut beside its left eye . There was also some trauma to the eye itself. It was treated for pain and possible infection.
Once it is stabilized, it will need stitches for the eye wound.
03/15/21 This owl is doing well but is not eating on it's own. We are hand feeding until it starts finding food in its enclosure. There is a laceration next to its injured eye that the veterinarian will suture .
