Eastern Screech Owl
Ivy was brought to the Center after being hit by a car, which left her with a broken wing and a shattered beak. She required months of rehabilitation but despite her wing being pinned she will never be able to fly again. Ivy does not have typical coloration for a screech owl, she has large areas of pure white feathers which is a form of leucism called “piebald.” The large white patches are found wherever she is missing the proper pigment in her skin, it is rare for wild animals with color abnormalities to survive to adulthood in the wild!
