Last night we were leaving my parents house and their dog was barking and growling like crazy. The dog had found a baby owl and had bitten its wing. My mom and I put the owl in a boxand gave it a blanket. Fast forward to the morning...

I go over there and we start giving it worms to eat and it snarfed them down. I got to work calling people to see if anyone in the area would be willing to take it. Luckily I found a Raptor center in Iowa City. I drove there and dropped him off. The cool thing is that if he is able to be rehabilitated they will give him back to us to release him where we found him.

She said he is a Barred Owl and is about a month old.


Unfortunately, he was badly injured. The bones were shattered and sticking out of his wing. They had to euthanize him :'(

He was super cute. I felt so bad for him. His wing is really messed up :(

But birds break wings and can make complete recoveries. Heres hoping he is one of them!

I won't lie and say they aren't creepy on a fall night in the woods... LOL

I didn't know this, but barred owls are the only owls to have brown eyes and have been known to hunt during late daylight, especially on cloudy days.

Thats your random fact for the day :)
