Baby Barred Owlet Is Growing Up

This baby barred owl came to us after he lost his home in a large tree when it was cut down. His brother was killed and mom and dad were devastated. He was only two days old and weighed 35 grams (left image). Now he weighs in at a whopping 500 grams and has moved outside to live with one of our permanent residents who is an excellent foster father! He is doing great now with foster dad Zephyr and new sister. We will keep you posted on his progress as he grows up and turns into a fierce predator! Next stop flight training and mouse school!
