Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Northern Pygmy owls
These two little owls recently arrived at our center. One came in on 10/31, suspected car strike. It presented with some minor head trauma, but is doing MUCH better now and has been moved outside for conditioning and we hope to release it soon. The other came in today 11/3 - it was found on the ground after being startled by a mower. People often confuse these guys for "baby" owls because they are only between 4 and 5 inches tall. Baby owls have fluff and have not developed feathers yet. We have many smaller species of owls in the state. These guys are small but LOADED with ATTITUDE. Status - sadly one died, but other one was released.
