Merlin, a male Barred Owl, was brought to the Center when he was found on the side of the road after being hit by a car. When he arrived he was unable to even hold his head up and his prognosis was guarded. After months of rehabilitation Merlin was nursed back to health but due to head trauma and being blind in one eye he was not a candidate for release. Merlin gives people the opportunity to meet one of our area’s most common owl species up close.
