Casper, Flammulated Owl

Casper the Flammulated OwlCasper was a female adult Flammulated Owl (Otus flammeolus) of unknown age. She was found near the Seattle area in April of 2004 and spent two months with a veterinarian there because of a wing injury. When she was well enough, she was flown to us via Horizon Air. We are uncertain how she sustained her injury but her left wing droops and she cannot fly. As of November 2005 Casper became a resident in an education program outside of WSU.
