This little screech owl is receiving supportive care after colliding with a vehicle while flying at night. She was dehydrated and covered in parasitic flies. She should make a full recovery and be released in about 4 weeks. During her recovery, she will be eating a lot of bugs and other nutritional foods.
Your donation on Giving Tuesday, can help feed her during her recovery.
Our Avian clinic rescues thousands of birds throughout the year, and 2 key ingredients to helping SkyWatch help them recover are medicine and warmth. The medicine helps them to heal, and the warmth they receive helps keep them comfortable during their recovery process. Many of the birds still in recovery from fall collisions with windows and cars, will winter at the rescue and be released in the spring.
Your donation on Giving Tuesday will help keep them warm, and provide much needed medical treatment, during their winter stay.
Several Hurricane Dorian Pelicans we picked up from the folks in Ocracoke, after the storm, will be spending the winter in our Pelican enclosure, to continue to gain weight, before being released in the spring. One of our volunteers spent several days driving back and forth, including ferry rides, to help get these beautiful birds to SkyWatch for rehabilitation. They were all found stranded, severely dehydrated and extremely anorexic, and require dozens of fish per day.
Your donation on Giving Tuesday, can help feed them during their recovery.
