Subject: Nestling great horned owl
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Being a wildlife rehabilitator has alot of great perks. I recently had a call from a subject who had found an owl on the ground. It turned out to be a nestling great horned owl and the nest was "only" a minimum of 60 feet up in a pine. Needless to say, there was no way to reach it so I am now raising this "big" little ferocious baby (it's not my first but they all have different personalities). Having rehabbed for at least 20 years really gives me a fantastic way to see young and adults of many different species REALLY UP CLOSE. It's a great learning experience and gives me a chance to study feathering, etc. Just thought I'd share this as this guy is so neat. Lynn Schlup, Oconee, Ga., Washington Co.
