Another baby owl

This cutie is TIMBER, a four week old Long-eared Owl found on the ground after a logger cut down her nest tree. The sad news is that there were three smaller babies that had apparently died some time before this one was rescued. A lot of people mistake these for baby GHOs but they are less than half the size and altho they also have "ears" they are closer together and shorter.

This young bird will be put into one of mews after I add a lot of natural branches and hopefully a whole tree to reproduce the forest habitat they live in. Then all she has to do is prove she can make live kills and she'll be released.
