Thank You Animal Clinic East & CTUIR Bus Service

A tiny Northern Saw-whet Owl was found tangled in netting in Walla Walla and taken to Animal Clinic East where it was examined and hydrated. Dr. Fazzari found no injuries, but thought a few days of rest and observation were in order. The Walla Wall Whistler transported the owl to Pendleton. He initially seemed a bit stiff and sore, but appears to have made a complete recovery. He will be returned to Walla Walla this week.

Tangled in Barbed-wire

This Red-tailed Hawk was admitted last week after being found tangled in a barbed-wire fence. The wounds on the underside of both wings are healing nicely and he will soon be moved outside to a flight pen to finish recuperating.

Baby Season Will Soon Be Here

The freezer at the Hack Site is full of mice in preparation for baby Barn Owls. The freezers at the Pendleton Center are also full. The intern schedule is being finalized. We never know what each day will bring, but if the past is any indication, there will be hundreds of birds passing through our doors over the next few months. Most will come from Washington, like the baby Great Horned Owl below. We try to renest as many babies as possible, but sometimes that is not possible. If you can transport birds needing care, we would appreciate your help. For more information attend the Volunteer Meeting on March 19 at the Richland Public Library.
