This Owl Burrito Is The Cutest Thing You Will Ever See

Aasdlkfjalwekjagkjljretg. Wrapping this saw-whet owl in a specially designed wrap makes it easier to weigh it.

In October of 2009, the University of Minnesota Raptor Center’s clinic has admitted 15 Northern saw-whet owls. he majority of them suffered traumatic injuries from colliding with objects such as windows. Head and internal trauma were common injuries, but the bird pictured here suffered from a fractured pelvis. This adult female saw-whet was a restless patient, but after about two weeks of cage rest and one week of exercise, her energies were once again put into surviving life in the wild.

Northern Saw-whet owls are the smallest owls in Minnesota. They weigh in at only 65-100 grams, live in woodland areas in northern and central Minnesota and the Twin Cities area.
