The Great Owl Release

Spring is always a welcome time for staff at MRWC as some patients who have overwintered with us can now be sent "home". As the weather warms up and their wild counterparts return to Alberta or become active again, muskrats, gulls, ducks, songbirds, owls, hawks, and even salamanders are set free once again. This Great Horned Owl was one of two released on a wildlife reserve where no other Great Horned Owl nests were known to exist in an attempt to avoid a fight over territory.
