Eastern Screech Owl

This is an Eastern Screech-Owl that came to us recently with an injured wing. He’ll be with us for awhile with his wing in a cast while it heals. Eastern Screech-Owls, like most other species of owl, are nocturnal. They have both brownish-red and gray colormorphs, and they can be found in wooded areas throughout the eastern United States. Their diet consists of pretty much any small animal that they can catch, including a large number of invertebrates such as frogs, beetles, and earthworms.
