Eastern Screech Owl #17-1000
A nestling eastern screech owl was admitted to the clinic after being dropped off at one of our drop locations. No information was provided as to where it came from, so it is unable to be re-nested. The owl will receive supportive care as it grows up and will be released once it is old enough to fly and hunt on its own.

The young owl has remained in good health. It is eating mouse pieces and has opened its eyes. It has lost most of its white "down" feathers and is growing its "juvenile" feathers.
