SNOW 17-2510 Deering Oaks Park – release photos! The Snowy Owl who was rescued at Deering Oaks Park in Portland on December 20, was released on February 20, in Lincoln County. When the owl arrived at Avian Haven, he was not only emaciated and debilitated, his feet, underside, and tail feathers were coated with an unidentified oily substance. We proceeded with very cautious supportive care and after a week, we felt he was stable enough for a bath. Soon after bath day, he finally began eating on his own and then gained weight rapidly. His progress has been steady as we upgraded him from smaller to larger habitats, and we were delighted to finally witness this beauty flying laps around the big flyway! We posted an awesome photo yesterday when Terry's camera caught him there in mid-flight. We released the young Snowy on a large piece of private property that Snowy Owls have been known to frequent in past winters. He flew quickly and strongly from the transport box, then soon disappeared into the fog. The property owners will keep an eye out for him and let us know of any sightings. We wish the owl happy hunting, a safe journey home, and a long and healthy life! fantastic release photos by Carol Jones – thank you Carol!
