This Long-eared Owl is quite the feisty bird so he should do well when he has his wing repaired. Hopefully that will happen after he goes in tomorrow for xrays and an exam. Thanks to Toni Annis and her gang for driving to meet me in Thermop with the bird.
UPDATE: Sad news. Surgery was attempted to repair the fracture but unseen in the xray was a crack in the large bone. It split open the entire length of the humerus which was not surgically fixable. He was humanely euthanized.
