04152017 Eastern Screech Owl
Eastern Screech Owl, the homeowner discovered it on their driveway with limited motion. Severe fracture of the right tibial tarsal leg bone. Fracture has been splinted and waiting for the healing to begin.
He is tearing up whole food on his own. He is being moved to a flight pen with other screech owls. His weight will be monitored closely. He will be released in a few weeks.
This little guy is doing fantastically! His tibia was shattered and we were very unsure if he would heal well enough to be released. But he has healed perfectly! He will be given another couple weeks to let his leg get to full strength and then he will be released.
Somehow during the rehab process, this little guy broke all his tail feathers! We are waiting on his tail feathers to regrow before we release him.
We are still waiting on him to replace all his tail feathers before he is released. Other than that he is doing great!
