Kettles Trail Barred Owl
This young barred owl was found on a hiking trail near Glen Lake suffering from head trauma due to a fall from its nest.
After medication, food, and a negative avian influenza test, we were able to return it to the wild this past week.
Special thanks to Bo Burke of Climb A Tree for donating climbing gear and a climbing lesson. Because of Bo's help, James was able to safely climb a tree and place the owl in a nest box.
