the Great Horned Owl

12 Years Old
Bubo virginianus
Eloctrocution - partial right wing amputee, brain damage
Came to Nature's Educators from Raptor Recovery Nebraska
Athena was found in the wild with a wing tip and talon missing. She was taken to Raptor Recovery Nebraska to be cared for. Our best guess to the cause of her injuries is electrocution due to the fact that she was found under a power line and that her feet were covered in scabs. We have also decided that she suffered some brain damage as her reactions are very slow and her tracking (vision) appears to be a little off.
