Adopt Shadow the Western Screech-Owl




Shadow found his forever home at Hawks Aloft after being transferred from the Santa Fe Raptor Center in 2013. He had been found by a maintenance worker who was blowing leaves in a parking lot; the little owl was unable to fly and was tumbling along with the leaves on the ground. Shadow had suffered an elbow-joint injury that has since healed, but he does not fly well enough to survive in the wild. It’s possible that he was hit by a car, or that he flew into a window hard enough to injure his wing. Western Screech-Owls are crepuscular, meaning that they are most active at dawn and dusk. This is when shadows are at their longest—hence the name “Shadow.”
