Juneau Raptor Center raptor release
- View SourceThe JRC will release a saw-whet owl on Thursday, Nov. 11, at noon. We plan
to let it go in the parking lot at the Church of the latter Day Saints,
5-mile Glacier Highway, near where the bird was collected.
"Sourdough," as we've callled him/her, struck the plow of a pick-up truck
and has been under treatment for a head injury. The bird has been very
feisty and is anxious to get back out mousing.
I apologize - we released a northern pygmy owl last Sunday - I didn't think
to use this method for notifying folks. These releases are a good chance to
take a close look at birds we don't get close to very often.
