Barn Owl - Release of a wild barn owl with The Owl Foundation May 2015

This past winter was very hard on owls.  This barn owl was found starving and quite thin.  Rescued by The Owl Foundation he was assessed and treated.  Finally he was ready to be released back in the wild.

Wellness Check.  Check the flight feathers and tail feathers by TOF
Wing check and photo for ID


Annick at TOF continues wellness check.

So excited to hold owl while being banded

Finally the big moment of release.  Annick and Jack stood and Annick opened her hands. The barn owl flew then gave us a wonderful circle over our heads.  Then was gone.  Time dusk.  

A little wink

And away he goes

Last sighting of the owl. 

Shared this great day with Annick and Jack of the  Owl Foundation and Chris M volunteer.

To end this great day Chris and I were asked to release a Eastern Screech Owl.
No photos as it was after 10pm.

This is one of the best release of all.
Good luck Barn Owl.
