Northern-Saw-whet-Owl-102723-in-ward-cage-110910-KM-(1)-rt-cc This Northern Saw-whet Owl was found on Nov 8 sitting in the middle of a Seattle street. He did not fly away when approached and was easily captured by a concerned member of the public.

The bird was admitted to PAWS Wildlife Center on Nov 9.  Although the owl had no signs of broken bones or other obvious injuries, he was still behaving in a depressed manner. It was believed that he either struck a window or had been struck by a car and suffered minor head trauma. Hopefully he will recover quickly.
