Two blog posts from earlier this year documented the return of a Great Horned Owl
and two Barn Owls to their respective nest sites. Returning baby owls to their
parents is always the best option, but unfortunately, sometimes the bird’s health
or other circumstances make this impossible. Such is the case for five owls
currently in care at PAWS.
first owl is a young Great Horned who was admitted to the wildlife center on
May 8. He was found on the ground along a popular walking trail in Woodinville,
appearing to be in distress. At PAWS, we discovered that the bird was anemic
and suffering from a blood parasite. He’s undergoing treatment for the parasite
and is recovering well in our care.
