Great Horned Owl in a flight pen at PAWS Wildlife CenterThis Great Horned Owl was admitted to PAWS on May 30 after being found on the ground under attack by crows. The owl had multiple bruises and a small cut on his belly. When the wildlife medical team did some blood tests, they discovered he was also carrying a blood parasite that is common in birds, but that was present in high enough numbers in this owl that it was causing him to be anemic.

As of today, his minor injuries have healed and after being treated for the blood parasite his anemia has improved.
