Great Horned Owl - released on behalf of The Owl Foundation

It was a cold clear day and just before dusk a male Great Horned Owl is being released back where he was found.
Back in May the owl was found with head injuries.  Dr. Jason Steinman vet took the owl to the office and gave him life saving trama care.  The owl was then transferred to The Owl Foundation who then proceeded to get owl stable and then the long recovery process  Last Friday he was ready to go.  I met Peter who is a volunteer also..  Then off I went north of Toronto.     3 hours to go so back roading I went.  Great drive and lots of horses. 

I met Dr. Jason and his son,  Michelle Vet Assistant and friends Charm and her kids. Michelle had the honour to release the owl.  He was was so ready to go.  The box was opened and the owl started to get ready to leave.

Into the back trees he flew

He quickly pooped and then away he went again.

Thank you so much Dr. Jason Steinman  and also the Owl Foundation for making it possible for the owl to go back to his home. With mating season about to start lets hope the female is still waiting for him.
