06042019 Barred Owl - 1
Today we received a call from the Soarin’ Hawk call taker at about 4:00 P.M. Lana was told there was an owl on a porch in Rome City, Indiana. The bird had been there about four hours after being discovered. Lana was able to approach the owl without much resistance. The bird did retain possession of Lana’s glove as she placed it in a carrier. No obvious injuries were noted. I met Lana at S.R. 3 and S.R. 205 where I finished the transport to Pine Veterinary Clinic for an exam by Dr. Funnel SHRR avian vet. The keel was a 2.5. The bird may have vision problems and did not react to stimulus.
This owl has been moved to our rehabilitation facility. He does not have all of his adult tail feathers. He will have to get in his tail feathers before we can determine his ability to fly.
