Barred owl trip to Owl Foundation

Today my daughter Julie, friend Peter and I went to The Owl Foundation to deliver a injured Barred Owl. It was a male, mature owl with a shoulder injury and also total emaciated (starving). I picked up the owl from Bowmanville Vet (who received the owl and stabilized it) then I took to the TOF. Once there we were treated to watching Annick check out the owl. She checked the fat level (0), eyes, wings, etc. Also the vet sent the X-Rays so we saw those. We will not know for a few days the future of the owl. Fingers crossed. Annick also gave Peter a real experience. She took us to see some of the resident and recovering owls, Great Horned Owls, Snowy Owls, Hawk Owl, Short Eared Owls, Barred Owl, Saw-whet owl and some juvenile Great Gray Owls. What a thrill. Thank you Annick.

  1. Beautiful photos! I love owls and was searching the internet for images of owls I can sketch. I'm a beginner and I'm taking a drawing class at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We practice sketching from large photographs of birds (seeing the most minute details is crucial). I'm very curious to know what the outcome was for this male Barred Owl with the shoulder injury?
