There’s nothing like a story featuring orphaned animals getting rescued to make us smile! We’ve seen a lot of great rescue tales recently, and this one is no exception. Two tiny screech owlets recently got a very happy ending – all thanks to the two hikers who noticed the poor animals and did everything they could to save their lives.

As reported by the Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, the two women found the little owlets during a hike through a canyon. Sadly, they discovered one of the three birds they found was dead, the other two living owls were stuck in the mud. They worked quickly to rescue the baby birds and brought them to the Center for care. Vets discovered the birds were dehydrated, and one was already quite weak. But, happily, those were the last trying moments for the two birds.

Because of their wonderful rescuers, the baby owls will now have a chance to grow strong again and, hopefully, one day return to their natural home.

The owlets are already getting healthier, stronger, and – slowly – bigger. Mealtime is, naturally, every little bird’s favorite time. At dinner, these little owls let everybody know that their name of screech owls is perfectly justified!

 

 

Thanks to people like these rescuers, many orphaned animals’ lives are saved with the help of sanctuaries and rescue centers. However, rescue actions should always be conducted with utmost caution – if you are unsure whether an animal is an orphan or just left by their mother as she hunts, if possible, always take care to contact a professional wildlife rescuer.
