History

On 6/5/2024 - an Indiana conservation contacted me saying a baby owl had been reported at a business. Upon my arrival Brody showed me a milk crate he had placed over the bird. Turns out it was an adult Eastern Screech Owl. The bird had a narrow keel and the right eye appears injured, closed. Brody pointed out a wood duck box that was damaged last night. The owl may have been in the box when it was damaged. The bird and box were photographed. 

The bird was taken to ICU for triage; unfortunately it succumbed to its injury and was humanely euthanized.
