Great horned owl hatchlings

GHO hatchling Admission Date: 9 April 2017
Location of Rescue: Woodbury County
Cause of Admission / Condition: Nest destruction
Patient Status: Current Patient

SOAR volunteer Tyler took in a PAIR of hatchling great horned owls.  The young owls popped out of a tree that some folks cut down the morning of rescue.  Unfortunately, Tyler had no opportunity to place them back in the nest, nor opportunity for a box placement.  The landowners who called it in already had them in a bucket and at their house and the remainder of the tree was removed. Please see this post for ways that we and our conservation partners have kept the family together.
