Critters, Critters, Critters!

29 Jul

We’ve had a busy, busy, busy July with a few new animals that were admitted and a whole ton of programming! YAHOOOO!!!!

Barn Owl:

He’s doing great! As soon as we reinforce our outdoor cages (we’ve had some heavy raccoon activity as of late) we will be him outside to see how well he can fly. Our fingers are crossed!!!!

If i move fast enough you’ll never get a picture of me!!!

Juvenile Barred Owl:

A male Barred Owl was brought in on Thursday after being hit by a car. After an exam, we found no broken bones and no signs of any internal bleeding. He spent the first night laying down and sleeping it off, but is now perching and eating on his own. WOOO!!!!

Before

After

 

Juvenile Kestrel:

This little one was moved outside after spending a couple of weeks being fostered by our resident kestrels, which caused a lot of squawking over who got the best perch. Because she kept squeezing inbetween the netting and the cage we did move her back inside, but she is flying just fine!!!

Juvenile Barred Owl:

This guy came in with cloudy eyes and has been getting eye drops ever since. They definitely  have cleared up, so his prognosis is looking good!

If I puff myself up real big maybe she’ll go away!

Red-Tail Hawk:

The Red Tail that came in last week after being hit by a car that caused damage to his eye is looking good! One of his eyes were filled with blood, but I am happy to say that today it looked clear! Time will tell if he can see out of it!

I can see clearly now that the blood is gone. (At least we’re hoping!)

Great Horned Owl:

Thursday a Great Horned was found in someone’s back yard looking injured. After an exam it was clear that the poor fella hadn’t ate in over a week. Its right foot was swollen and it somehow had been sprayed by a skunk. My theory is that the critter tried to eat the skunk and was injured, which stopped him from being able to hunt. As bad as he was he survived the next two days, but finally succumbed to his injuries over the night. 😦
