Chimney Screech Goes Home

On November 3, 2019, the Soarin' Hawk rescue line received a call from Katy P. about a little screech owl that had fallen down a chimney in Columbia City. Katy and her husband were very concerned, and - when it was determined that the owl could not be rescued from the roof - they removed their fireplace insert so the owl could be rescued. As soon as the fireplace insert was removed, the owl flew around Katy's living room until he was caught by Soarin' Hawk volunteer Louie, who brought the owl to our ICU. After receiving a clean bill of health from Dr. Pat, and being observed for a couple of days, he was ready to go back home. Watch the release here:
