So, we are still working on a few transfers of non-releasable birds that we feel would make good educational ambassadors. One of those, is Danny, a Great Horned owl that came in to us, already missing a portion of one of his wings. This poor guy had been living by scavenging things off of the ground. His talons were dull showing he had been on the ground for some time. He was thin and dehydrated. We couldn't do anything about the wing as it had happened some time before him being discovered. We did make sure infection would not take hold and provided him with food and other nutritional support. He will be going to Missouri and a group that provides educational programs to the public. Danny has the perfect temperament for this. The paperwork is in the works.
We also have a new Red-Tail hawk that came in after being found in a field in Emery county. She is a first year bird, with a swollen left foot and an abrasion higher up on her leg. She also has a fracture in the wrist of her left wing. At this point she appears non-releasable. She most definitely needs an x-ray to determine this.
Little Mojo had her x-rays and her injuries
are not healed. In fact, she has a fracture in the 'hand' portion of her left wing and her left humerus.
