HWCC's Wildlife Patient of the Month:
Western Screech Owl
HWCC's Education Ambassador Screech Owl Chillido had a new job: babysitting! This Western Screech Owl chick was found on the ground near Fortuna by a hiker. The parents could not be located so the chick stayed at HWCC with Chillido. A few days later another chick was found in the same location. Bird Ally X staff went back to the area at night and were able to locate the parents. The two chicks were left in a secure spot near the parents and checked on them again at 5 am the next day. We have been doing a lot of renesting this year and it has been quite successful. Night vision goggles would have made this renesting much easier. If you have a pair you'd like to donate call or email us.
