Fallen improving

Our little fallen Barred Owl has been steadily improving and has been placed in the resident care of our Educational Ambassador Mack. Having a foster mom is the best option for this baby because his condition requires monitoring. Some days, he shows real progress, yet other days, he seems to have some kind of lapse. We wanted to get him back out in the nest, but his erratic condition prohibits it at this point. Although Mack doesn't feed the baby, she is there as a visual aid for him. He sees her as the source of food rather than his care givers. Meanwhile, he's starting to eat on his own and soon we'll be able to move him into our large flight conditioning cage with live prey training area. As always, we'll keep you posted!
