Thanks Tom Sawyer for your persistence in finding Soarin' Hawk!  This little immature Eastern Screech Owl was found stranded on a pier for several hours.  After having no evidence that the mom was still around, Tom made several phone calls before he found us.  Upon exam the little guy is just a little thin but in great shape otherwise.  Luckily we have two others about the same age that he can finish growing up with!

05252016-ESOW-1. This little guy has gained weight and is doing great! He has now joined the other orphaned screech owls in a flight pen.  Nothing cuter than an immature screech owl!
