Latin Name

Bubo virginianus

History at CuriOdyssey

She was found on the ground in the East Bay and was taken to the Lindsey Wildlife Museum Rehabilitation Center. When they examined her they noticed that she was missing half of her left wing. Although part of the wing was missing it had healed completely and she had no other injuries. Because the wing had a clean break it was assumed that the injury was caused by a car or power line. She was transferred to us in November 1995 and placed in the education collection.
