Barred Owl Release

September 23, 2018

Last Friday, we got to see a barred owl released at Arterra Wines and Hawkmoth Arts. When the owl was very young, it apparently fell out if its nest and was found injured on the ground. The owl was rehabilitated and released by Dr. Belinda Burwell of Wildlife Veterinary Care which cares for sick and injured wildlife in Northern Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland. Here are a couple of photos of the owl’s release back into the wild. I was amazed at how quietly the owl flew away (owls have special feathers enabling nearly silent flight).
