A friend of mine found this Tawny owl chick wandering by the roadside one evening presumably after falling from its nest, the location of which he was unable to find. So, he took him home. He dedicated one room of his house for its welfare and made a rudimentary nest and ad hock tree to perch on. After many weeks feeding and caring for him he took the fledgling to a forest one early evening and released him in the wild. I had the great fortune of taking some photographs of this charming fluffy little owlet a few days after installing him in his new room, the window of which reflecting in his wide and inquisitous eyes.
