Busy, busy, busy!

Activity in the ward has really picked up since spring break. We now have 2 Mourning Doves, 2 Red Tailed Hawks, and a young Great Horned Owl. The Barred Owl is still here and doing very well. He should be headed off to a rehabber fairly soon. Lucy, the Canadian Goose, is also progressing and will hopefully be able to leave the clinic shortly.

The residents have also been really busy. Odin, Nokomis, Pistol and Noel went to an event on the vet school campus yesterday. The owls have an event tonight and Odin and Pistol have one tomorrow morning. Saturday is the CVM Open House, and all of the birds will be coming out for that too! It's also been warm enough for the birds to start going outside to their flight cages for a few hours, and they have been really excited to spend time outdoors!
