Patient of the Week
This week’s patient is Bowlen, an adorable orphaned Barn Owl. Bowlen was found on the ground with no parents nearby. He is being cared for by the veterinary staff in our Wildlife Hospital until he is old enough to care for himself.
For the past month we have kept Bowlen in a large bird box but he is growing fast and has now upgraded to a large aviary in our Raptor Rehabilitation facility. Here he will learn more grown owl behaviours and have less human contact in preparation for Bowlen to learn to care for himself in the wild.
