802.359.5000 | WILD BIRD REHAB: x510
Here at the wildlife services department of VINS we have been lucky enough to play foster parents to a young eastern screech owl for the past few weeks. If you have recently been by the Rehab In Action exhibit’s one way viewing window you may have seen us dancing around in a crazy looking feathered mask. This is our ‘Momma Owl’ mask. Since raptors are highly intelligent it is very easy for them to become imprinted on humans. This means if they grow up in close contact with humans they start to think they are human and it is incredibly difficult to “re-wild” a bird once this has happened.
