The Wildlife Center of Virginia invites you to join them tomorrow — Tuesday, October 17 — at James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange. They’re releasing a young GREAT HORNED OWL back to the wild!
Great Horned Owl, Patient #17-0363 ~ The Star Of The Show
This owlet came to the Wildlife Center in April after falling from its nest. When the rescuer was unable to re-nest it, the owlet was brought to the Wildlife Center.
The Owlet, back in April. My, how it has grown!
Bright and feisty, the little owlet was eventually housed with an adult Great Horned Owl resident at the Wildlife Center who helped “raise” it by showing the owlet the ropes of hunting and life in the wild. The owlet’s healthy and ready to be free!
The owlet’s full Wildlife Center patient report is here.
There’s nothing like watching a wild animal get a second chance back in the wild. It’s a special experience and will warm your heart. I’ll be there. I hope you will, too.
Here are the details:
The owlet will be released at James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange County on Tuesday, October 17 at 6:15 p.m. The release is open to the public.
