Mother nature has a way of looking after its own. Its beautiful creations i.e. the animals who are born with the skills, they will need throughout their lifetime to keep themselves and their families safe, happy, and healthy. But having said that, there are some who needs a helping hand which gives the humans a chance to serve back to these adorable creatures.
One such animal is Owl who are terrible at building their nests. Due to which, their young ones usually hurt themselves by falling from it. However, thankfully, there are people who understand the situation and knows just what they have to do.
The Wisconsin’s Dane County Humane Society’s Wildlife Center is the first line of defense for baby owls who fall from poorly constructed nests.
So, before they begin the process of renesting, they make sure that the owlets are healthy and properly hydrated. Young owls don’t have a lot of defense mechanisms. Mostly, they’re just loud, making a series of clacks and sometimes hisses in an effort to scare off would-be attackers.
This owlet, naturally, was a bit grumpy as he had no idea that he was actually being helped.
Once the fallen owl youngster was given a clean bill of health, the team returned it to the site of its fall. In order to do that, they needed to locate the nest itself or look for the parents. Clues, like these feathers or possibly the owl pellets, can point the team in the right direction.
When team members are looking for places where owls spend a lot of time and potentially nest, mute marks like owl poop are a great sign that they’re nearby.
After spotting that owl poop, the team found the mother of the fallen owl. She was sitting by her flimsy nest, watching and waiting eagerly for the return of her youngster.
