From Wild Care Cape Cod:
Thanks to the kindness of a local family, this lovely red-phase Eastern Screech Owl survived hitting a car windshield overnight to come into our care this morning.
Understandably, the owl doesn't seem too pleased with the situation, but after a physical exam this morning, he/she will spend the day in ICU, with us observing at a respectful distance with the remote camera.
Did you know? Some screech owls are grey and some are red. It's just a natural variation and doesn't correlate with sex, age, habitat, or anything else. Neat!
