Great Horned Owlet #17-0363

On March 29, a Great Horned owlet was found in Mechanicsville on the ground — the owlet was below a nest that was 100 feet up in the tree.  The rescuer attempted to re-nest the owl, but the nest was too high to easily reach. The rescuer also tried to make a secondary nest for the owlet (in hopes that the parents would find the baby and continue to care for it), but the effort proved unsuccessful. The bird was then brought to a rehabilitator, who transferred the owlet to the Center.
