A Great Grey Owl from the Crestomere area, after recovering from a concussion, was taken back to the spot it was found. Great Grey Owls mate for life so we feel if the bird recovers before the next breeding season it is important to return it home. The bird was taken back to the spot it was found on the road after calling the finders to take part in the release. Just as they were to release the little male, a large female swooped across the road in front of them, landing in the trees on the side of the road. The recovered bird was released into the air and it circled, then flew directly into the trees with the waiting female.
