Beautiful Great Horned Owlet

A Brentwood homeowner found this beautiful Great Horned Owlet in her yard today and called for help. We could have taken her, but it’s always preferable to reunite baby animals with their parents, if possible. We made a temporary nest and contacted our friend who is Tennessee’s re-nesting specialist; she will find the nest, climb the tree and put the owl back. In cases where the nest has been destroyed, she can affix baskets, crates, or laundry hampers to the tree branches.
