New Owlets Join Us
Our Great-horned owl foster mom Aggie has her hands full these days. In addition to the first 3 owlets that came to us last month, we now have a total of of 6 owlets. Joining us this week are owlets #4892 & 4893.Owlet #4892 came to us from the lumber yard at the Ace Hardware in Westcliffe. His mom decided that a 50 foot tall insulation stack a good place to build her nest. Unfortunately, all the activity in the lumber yard did not make it a good place and 4892 was in danger of falling off the insulation stack.
Owlet #4893 was rescued from the Chemical Depot. Both owls were just a few weeks old when they arrived and needed constant attention in ICU. Now that they are strong enough they have been placed in the enclosure with Aggie and the other rescued owlets
Our first owlet of the season #4882 (who you might remember from earlier newsletters) is doing very well. In fact she is just a couple of weeks away from heading out to the flight cage, where she will work out her wings and begin to fly. We”ll keep you updated as more owls arrive.
