Releasing Owlet Cuties

We released 2 very photogenic spotted owlets yesterday! A local farmer found them tangled in a net designed to keep birds away from crops. He tried taking care of them but ended up bringing them to WFFT after they didn’t eat for three days. Radiographs didn’t reveal any internal issues but they did have some superficial wounds. They were a little underweight and in shock so we force-fed them and monitored their weight and wounds. A week later they were good to go! We released them together with a nesting box in an area without predators. Be free and stay away from the humans!
