RELEASE! Barred Owl Returned to Palisades-Kepler

What an exciting week it has been for The RARE Group!  We have another release to share with you!

This owl was found at Palisades-Kepler State Park shortly before Halloween.  He had head trauma and was having trouble gripping with its feet.  Our RARE volunteers hand-fed him until he could eat on his own.

He was well enough to be transferred to the flight cage around Thanksgiving, and since then, has made great progress.  We returned him to his home on December 9.

Thanks to all who support us and make releases like this possible.

Enjoy this sweet video!
