Northern Saw-Whet Owl

This immature owl came in from Idaho with an old radius fracture in its left wing. Due to size and the nature of the break being so close to the elbow, the joint is compromised, and the bird is unable to fly.

Update: After consulting with our local veterinarian, this patient has been deemed healthy and viable for educational placement with no expectation of pain or arthritis in the elbow joint.
