Help us welcome our new Barred Owl, Harlan!

Categories: Woodbury County News

We received this owl on April 18, 2017.  We believe it is a male but do not know its age.  Harlan is permanently injured and unable to sustain flight, thus he cannot hunt for food.  He was hit by a car and found near a city park in Harlan, Iowa.  A compound fracture damaged the elbow and shoulder.

Thanks to Kay Neumann and Saving Our Avian Resources (SOAR) for their assistance with this owl and with our other raptors.

Stop out to the Nature Center and meet Harlan!
