Orphaned Owlet Reared By Surrogate Mom
April 09, 2022
A little over a week ago, Abilene Zoo began caring for an orphaned Great Horned owlet. The goal at that point was to help the chick develop with as little human contact as possible.
The Chick is now being raised by Abilene's resident great horned owl, Einstein. This will allow Abilene to stay hands off and may lead to the release of this chick back into the wild skies of Texas once it has fledged.
