The Week In Review

There were nine admissions this past week, eight raptors and one Silver-haired Bat. The bat weighed a plump 13 grams and appeared to be uninjured. He probably picked the wrong place to roost and was disturbed, ending up on the ground. We gave him some fluids and sent him on his way.

Long-eared Owl 17-647


This medium sized owl managed to tangle his wing in a power line. Pacific Power quickly sent a crew out to free him, but his left wing was damaged too badly to repair.

Two Great Horned Owls and a Sharp-shinned Hawk also had injuries too extensive to repair. The Great Horned Owl below had a humerus fracture that was totally unrelated to the air rifle pellet near her backbone. She was shot at a minimum of several months ago. The wound had completely healed. She was in excellent condition until a collision of some type (perhaps with a car or power line) resulted in her broken wing.

Northern Saw-whet Owl 17-655


The Pendleton Police Department delivered this tiny owl to BMW Saturday evening. He was found in a bike lane along a major Pendleton road. He doesnt appear to have any broken bones, but a significant headache. Hopefully he will be  releasable after a few days of supportive care.
