Barred Owl

This Barred Owl was brought to the center earlier today after being found on the roadside, suffering from eye trauma, internal bleeding, and an air sac injury. This species seems to mate for life and are homebodies in comparison to other owls, generally prefer to be sedentary in their home range. This patient is stable for now but is still in critical care and will need all the help he can get to recover. #swvawildlifecenter #barredowl
