Eastern Screech Owl
Otis, a Screech Owl, came to the rehab center in 1998 for treatment on a broken wing. Though small, she is feisty, and she chewed off her bandages. Otis flapped around and caused a more serious and permanent injury to her wing in a different place, thus preventing her release back into the wild.
Male and female Screech Owls look the same in appearance and for years Otis was thought to be a male. When Otis received a male cage mate, she surprised everyone by laying eggs.
