20240128-Eastern Screech Owl-1

Admission Date
Rescue Location
Hoagland, IN
Cause of Admission
Flew into van

On 1/28, a woman called Soarin’ Hawk and said that a screech owl hit the side of her van as she was going to work. She stopped and picked him up and put him in a box in her car and went to work. When she got to work, she called Soarin’ Hawk. Wayne and I picked him up and took him to ICU. 

The initial exam did not show any obvious injuries, but we weren’t sure if he was standing correctly, and he might have had a little blood in one eye. He could fly because he got out of the woman’s box in the car and flew around the car, and flew a little in the ICU. He was alert and had a very good keel.
