the Barn Owl

Less than 1 Year Old
Tyto alba
Amputated wing tip
Came to Nature's Educators from New Mexico Wildlife Center
Somnus was found on the side of the road most likely hit by a car. His wing tip was so damaged beyond repair, that amputation was the best option. Being unable to fly, we lives with us as an ambassador.
