Saint Nick the Snowy Owl
Is still at CWC and doing much better!
Arrived at CWC on Christmas Day! WCO Amanda Isett received a call from the SCI Smithfeild on Christmas day that they had an injured snowy owl. The owl had some minor skin tears and broken feathers from the razer wire at the prison. WCO Isett responded and caught the owl with the help of the prison staff. Volunteer Charlotte Simpson transported the bird to CWC where he received fluids and medical care right away. We did have some issues with Saint Nick not eating well and losing weight when he was in a flight. We suspected some pain related issues so we brought him back inside and put him on pain meds. He is now off pain meds, back out in a flight, eating well and flying well. However, since he took longer to recover than we anticipated, he missed migration. We will probably wait till fall to release. We thank all involved who worked to save this very special bird.
