TRC ambassador Leslie Goodyear rescued this female Great Horned owl near the base of Teton Pass in Wilson, WY, very close to Teton Raptor Center. Likely a victim of a vehicle strike, this Bubo virginianus suffered head trauma and a dislocated elbow. Thanks to the TLC of TRC staff and ambassadors, she returned to the wild on November 27th! As the TRC team celebrated, a flock of magpies objected to the return of their avian enemy with pokes and squawks. But the birds know who has the advantage once the sun sets, and by nightfall, the magpies had gone to roost, leaving the owl unmolested.
