This brave little trooper is a Northern Pygmy Owl (Glaucidium californicum). He was the victim of a window strike and suffered head trauma. He was looked after by O.W.L. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society for a couple of months and made a full recovery and was released back into the wild. An interesting note, while Pygmy Owls do not have true ear-tufts like some other species, they are able to extend their brow feathers to the side when threatened or alarmed.
