Leopold - Barred Owl

Name: Leopold
Species: Barred Owl; Strix varia

Life History

In the spring of 2014 a veterinarian was traveling to the Florida Keys from Sarasota, Florida, and found Leopold on the Tamiami Trail. Leopold had been hit by a car and was suffering from a broken left wing. Our rehabilitation team was able to save Leopold’s life, but his wing wasn’t able to heal completely. Due to his permanent injury Leopold is not able to be released back into the wild. Now Leopold is an Animal Ambassador and helps us to teach people about birds.
