A young Great Horned Owl was found a week after a spring windstorm. It's likely that it fell from its nest during the storm. It was noticed hanging out near a trash bin (and at times on it as pictured). HOP was called in and found it dehydrated and a little thin. HOP brought it to WildCare for a check up where it was given fluids and plenty of food.
Once strong and ready to be returned to its family, the Hungry Owl Project's Raptor Rescue & Reunite (RRR) team returned it to a safer area near its siblings and parents.
The parents were still actively feeding the owlets. Volunteer nest monitors will keep an eye on the Great Horned Owl family until the owlets can fly to help ensure a successful reunite.
