Barn Owl Update: Day 7

28 May

The Barn Owl is getting stronger every day! He is now standing on his feet and was able to perch on  his branch for a little bit! He still isn’t eating on his own yet, but with the help of wildlife staff he has been gaining his weight back with force feeding him mice with a high calorie dietary supplement smeared on them. He’s on a new medication to help keep his food down, which makes our job easier. He was hissing today and he even tried biting me, which is a great sign!

The Barn Owl standing on his feet and hissing at me! He was not happy about getting out of his cage today.
