ISABELLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Aren’t they cute!

The Wildlife Recovery Association in the Isabella County community of Shepherd is busy helping several baby owls.

The group took in two baby barred owls after all the trees where their nest was located were cut down. They were first brought to the Animal Medical Center in Midland, which turned them over to Wildlife Recovery. The owlets were so small their eyes weren’t open. But now that they’ve grown a little, and their eyes have opened, they will be fed with a puppet that looks like an owl.

Last month the group also took in a tiny screech owl. The group’s Facebook page says it was most likely snatched from the nest by a predator and dropped. On the first day at Wildlife Recovery the owl was still curled up as if it was in an egg.

But the most recent owl intake for the association is a great horned owl. His eyes were still closed when he was found. Experts caution though that this particular species is often found out of the nest at a young age. Although, their eyes should be open at that point.
