Eastern Screech Owl released back home Oct 8, 2013

 Stacy does a wellness check
this is a hatch year owl - born this year

 I was able to hold the owl while Stacy banded owl, checked wing length and weighed him
 Donna and I were asked to drop off a peregrine falcon. Luckily an owl need to be released in Toronto. 
Waiting till near dusk we released the screech owl. 
 Owl didsnt want to let go of my glove
 Donna gets ready to release the screech owl
 Peeking out of the box
 Gone -back to the wild

The owl landed in the tree, looked at us and then flew deep in the woods.  Photos by Donna Hayes and Ann Brokelman
