Our call line received a call about a great horned owl that was eating their chickens.  They had caught the owl in a live trap. Our volunteer picked up the owl and transported it to our treatment center.

It was found to be a healthy owl with a brood patch, so we knew there was a nest that we needed to get her back to.

The same volunteer took her back to the area that was most likely to contain her nest.
