Owlets Released into a Barn
Checked into Hospital:
Release Date: 07/07/05
These are four Barn Owlets,
out of ten, that were released on a farm near Kearney, Missouri.
Several clutches of Barn Owlets recuperated at the hospital at
the Center in 2005. Barn Owls have large clutches and can
hatch up to thirteen owlets. Many of these owls were
displaced form their nesting sites and were turned over to
Lakeside Nature Center. At one point over the summer we
had so many Barn and Barred owlets that we were going through
100 mice a week! We were glad to help them but we were
even happier to see them go free.
