One of my best memories of my dad was he used to take in, rehabilitate & release injured owls. All kinds and even a hawk once that someone hit, tried to save and ended up bringing to him. The local vets & animal control would call him usually when the got a call to go "take care of" one on the side of the road. Pretty cool as a young kid going to the grocery store with my dad, buying stinky raw liver and feeding them (with a glove) by hand!
"Meet Zeus, a blind Western Screech Owl with eyes that look like a celestial scene captured by the Hubble Space Telescope." ~unknown Aw-w-wwwwwwwwwww! :S... "Ironically, though blind, he has the entire universe in his eyes!" ♥
