Last week we learned that our Snowy Owl that was hit by a bus had been sent to The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota to continue rehabilitation. Looks like it’s going well! Thanks to a reader for sending an update from the The Raptor Center:

“The “DC Snowy” was given a series of reconditioning flights this morning to assess flight mechanics, strength, and endurance. We invited some press friends to capture this story to be shared with the many people who have expressed interest. Look for WCCO-4 and KSTP-5, among others, to air stories.”
