Above, VINS Wildlife Services intern Lauren Potter gets ready to release our screech back into the wild.
Well, our foster mom is back on exhibit, and our youngster grew up and is on his own in the great wide woods of Vermont. It was a win-win-win for all: the baby grew up with a real owl as his role model; the adult screech had the opportunity to be a mom; and we had the joy of seeing a young bird grow up healthy and return to his home in the wild.
