« GiveBIG to the Animals on May 15 | Main | A Very Vocal Baby Bear Arrives at PAWS »

 

Two weeks ago, the PAWS Wildlife Center received a call from a very confused park maintenance staff member at the Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park in Redmond. The employee had been conducting a routine sweep of the park, along one of their heavily used pathways, when she came across a Great Horned Owl chick sitting on the ground looking quite stunned. Directly above, she spied the mother owl and two other chicks peering down from the branches more than 50 feet above.

The park worker was concerned that the extensive fall had severely injured the owl, so she brought him to PAWS to be checked out. Upon arrival, the owl chick had already perked up significantly, but a low red blood cell count in the bird's initial blood work indicated that he was slightly anemic.
