Description:

A (loud!) window strike. The kindly "enviro team" spring into action. The stunned bird is boxed, then gently examined for injury. Boxed again while the team has their punctured fingers repaired (watch the talons, not the beak!) At 7 that evening the uninjured and fully recovered bird soars into the forest ...

Photos (and blood) kind courtesy of Umdoni Retirement Village Pics.

This is possibly the first record of a wood owl in Tokai Park. I think there may have been one or two sightings up in the forest, but not in the Park.this is also the first owl i have seen in Tokai.
