Spring is here and so is our first fledgling! This young Great Horned Owl was found in a dumpster; however it is quite healthy and very feisty. Since the information about this bird's original nest is unknown, we are on the search for a suitable foster nest with fledglings of similar age. Until then, treatment includes little to no interaction so the young owl does not begin to associate humans with food.
Update: A suitable foster nest was found! This young owl was released in a nest with other fledglings of similar age where the adults will provide for it until it is ready to leave!
