UPDATE: 11/3/19 Our placement coordinator believes she has found a facility for this screech owl and the other screech owl that is non releasable

Picked up this Dazed but beautiful little Owl in the Corunna area on Friday late afternoon. It was showing signs of confusion and had an eye injury. The people who found it, found it in the driveway. It's very possible it side swiped a vehicle

10/06/19 This Owl is dehydrated and has damage to its left eye. It is being treated with subcutaneous fluids and eye drops to help with any pain in its eye. It has been eating well , so that is a benefit for it

10/13/19 This Owl is still in our treatment facility. It is receiving treatment for its eye. It is also receiving pain medication. He is starting to "perk" up a bit . which always makes us happy

10/21/2019 We are continuing treatment for this bird.It is slowly starting to eat on its own

10/28/19 Because this owl's vision has not returned , our veterinarian team has determined it is non releasable. It is eating well on its own and no longer requires any medication
