grey screech Pewter
Eastern Screech Owl

Pewter is a grey-phase screech owl, rescued in Sioux City and admitted to us in June 2019 as a young-of-the-year bird (also called hatch-year 2019). This owl (she?) had a fractured right humerus very near the elbow joint that did not heal in a position to allow for flight. This young owl could have been hit by a vehicle or suffered another traumatic injury to the wing. Pewter is a shade of grey!
