Rough and Tumble

The hit-by-car Great Horned Owl we received on Saturday seems to be improving. Today, more ticks fell off him and I believe it is these blood suckers which are making him all the weaker. His bruised body is too weak for us to spray him with anything which would kill the ticks, so we have to wait them out. I've never in my life seen so many ticks on a bird!

He's very weak and badly bruised. There may be internal bleeding as well. It's still too early to guess how this case will turn out. As always, we'll keep you posted!
