Rescued Great Horned Owl Released | January 2017

Susan and Martin got the call at night before they went to bed and a couple hours later UDWR delivered another great horned owl that was extremely thin, has some broken feathers and some balance problems. It was found out on the Milford Flats and was probably hit by a car, but Martin found no broken bones and he did eat last night which is good.

You can see the owl’s beak looks a little tweaked, but he is still able to use it and open his mouth to eat just fine. They usually swallow small rodents whole.
