This great horned owl was found in a pond completely waterlogged, unable to fly. After some rest and drying off, the Orange Beach Wildlife Center and Management Program flight-tested her to see if she could fly. She spent a few more days with us recovering and then was released. Alabama Marine Resources Division Officer Chris Cox caught and transported the owl to the Wildlife Center so he helped with the release.
