He hates you.
He hates everything.
But especially you.

that owl is almost entirely head. Head and hatred.

I’m glad you’re all enjoying the owls! Spring is one of the busiest times in the bird world, so I’m happy I can share them with you, they really are amazing animals. We banded the young screech owls today, and they should be released soon! And Ginger here is off surrogate parent duty as of today, so she gets some time to relax with no kids to look after. 🐤🌸 (at www.arc4raptors.org)

Greater Sooty Owl (Tyto tenebricosa)
…is a species of barn owl (Tytonidae) that is native to south-eastern Australia, New Guinea and Flinder’s Island in the Bass Strait. Like other barn owls T. tenebricosa are nocturnal and inhabit moist forests where smooth-barked gum trees are present, along with ferns and a wet under-story. Greater Sooty Owls feed mainly on large arboreal marsupials like greater gliders, but will take birds, bats, and large insects as well.

Please don’t care for injured wildlife on your own. Left: Baby green herons brought to von Arx Wildlife Hospital right after they were found.
Right: Separate baby green herons brought in after two days of home care.
See the difference?

I cannot stress this enough.
The amount of fucking times people try to be the hero and then end up failing and giving a half-dead, stressed and sickened animal for rescues to deal with and most of the time they die. Also don’t decide to keep the babies overnight take them straight to the damn wildlife or vet because they need feeding every hour or two and you are starving them.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ‘BE THE HERO’
BE A REAL HERO AND GIVE THEM TO PROFESSIONALS WHO HAVE TRAINED THEIR WHOLE LIVES AND KNOW HOW TO ACTUALLY LOOK AFTER WILDLIFE

Also, don’t bring them to me in a sealed plastic bag.
^actually happened. was DOA, unsurprisingly.
