Thank You Animal Clinic East

A Western Grebe was taken to Animal Clinic East in Walla Walla. After being examined and found to be uninjured, it was put on the tribal bus and transported to Pendleton.

We often see grebes during fall migration. The birds land on wet pavement thinking it is a body of water. They are unable to take off because they need to run across the water in order to get air born. This grebe passed his swimming test and was released the next day in the Columbia River.

Burrowing Owl Update

The Burrowing Owl admitted three weeks ago unable to stand can now fly! At first we weren't sure he would survive. Now there is hope he will be releasable.

Great Gray Owl Enrichment

We are always looking for ways to enrich the lives of our permanent residents. Sometimes it doesn't take much effort. Intern Emily used the weed eater in the Great Gray Owl aviary and the owls decided to do some interior decorating with the cuttings.
