08072019 Great Horned Owl - 1
Via volunteers Bill and Sue:
Got a call from Lynne around 9:15 am. There was an owl down near the airport. When we arrived we found a baby great horned owl confined in a cardboard box. There was some blood on its bill and a bit on one talon. The caller Don explained that they had been working on this large metal storage building for over a year and frequently found birds that had gotten in during the night. This morning though they found 2 owls, one twice the size of the other. The larger one escaped thru an open window. The smaller one tried to follow several times but only managed to hit the wall. When it finally went down they got it outside and into a box.
When we arrived at ICU, it was confirmed to be a baby. It’s a very feisty bird and well fed, and appears to be in good shape.
