Barred Owl Release

A Barred Owl release up north of Orilla. With Jen Howard and Pam Higgins (Wye Marsh) Stopped at the Owl Foundation to pick up a juvenile male Barred Owl. Annick quickly caught him in the net and I was able to get a good look at the owl. The owl was weighed and then pack in a box for the drive up north. On the way I hit two snowstorm.

  1. Is this the Barred Owl that came in with a shoulder injury? Regardless, you guys do amazing work with these animals. Living in a city, not much opportunity to take part in volunteering for this kind of thing. I love all animals and especially birds. Wonderful.
