Spring and Summer are baby seasons at the New England Wildlife Center. We receive an incredible diversity of orphaned native birds that require hand feedings every few minutes. Our devoted interns provide the constant care, cleaning and love to raise these animals to a releasable age. Pictured here are two nestling Eastern Screech owls that are enjoying a “vacation” from their cage while it is being cleaned. They loved the view from the second story window where they could see the woodlot behind our hospital. A few weeks later, these owls were moved into an outdoor cage in the woodlot, and once they acclimated to life outdoors they left the cage on their own accord to return to a life in the wild.
