Hoot let the owls out: Raptor Center hosting release party at Keisel Park

Terrifying.

The latest podcast at Offbeat Auburn is an interview with the folks of Auburn’s Southeast Raptor Center, who will be releasing Barred and Eastern Screech Owls into the leash-less wilds of Keisel Park in a bring-a-picnic event tomorrow night.

Turns out nothing was ever actually wrong with the owls… beyond the trauma of being bird-napped. The owls were brought to the center by well-meaning folks who happened upon them and didn’t realize they were, in fact, healthy fledglings who sometimes chill out on the ground for up to a month while learning to hunt. But now they’ll able to participate in an educational presentation prior to the release aimed at informing folks when it’s right to rescue a raptor and when it’s not.

No harm, no fowl.
