The baby eastern screech owl was found by Teddy Bullard near Grissetown last month. Transport volunteer Marie Magill drove up to get it. It was placed close to and then in the same cage with an adult owl. The adult is very protective of the wide eyed newcomer and is a role model for it. The adult is not releasable due to an eye injury but the baby should be able to return to the wild.
