Tell us the Good Stuff!
Snowy Owl Exam at the CWRC
This snowy owl came from North Sydney. We thought it may have had broken wrists but they appear to be just bruised. Was thin and weak when found. Now it’s feisty and eating up a storm with a good prognosis for release. Snowy Owls are commonly found much further north. They has a been a large number of sightings of snowy owls this year, some as far south as Texas with one being spotted in the Bahamas. It is a worrying sign to see so many so far south. It is either an indicator of an issue with their food source up north or unusual numbers of juveniles survived the spring and are now having trouble finding food and are thus moving south.
The CWRC is a non-profit registered charity providing veterinary care to injured and orphaned wildlife in Nova Scotia, Canada.
