Owl baby rescue

On April 11, a 3-week-old great horned owl baby was found on the ground under a tall redwood tree. Hospital staff observed it for a couple of days to make sure it was healthy. During that time, volunteers went out to look for its nest. About 60′ up the tree, they found an adult great horned owl on its nest with another youngster. Jim McCreary, of McCreary Tree Service, volunteered to climb the tree and reunite the owlet with its parents. This photo was taken on April 16, and shows the young owl settling into its new nest, a donated basket, to replace the nest the youngster had been blown out of on a very windy night. Thanks to Jim, the golf course superintendent who found the owl too close to a fairway, and all the volunteers who helped reunite the owl with its family.
