Owl Hall of Famer Helps Arizona Owl

Dick Clark, recipient of a 2008 Special Achievement Award from the World Owl Hall of Fame, made the news in May. He had been observing a Great Horned Owl nest on a large power transmission structure near Prescott, Arizona and one day found a youngster hanging upside down by one leg, 80 feet up in the air. Read the whole story in The Daily Courier.

It's wonderful to know that researchers like Dick care about individual birds as well as populations as a whole. Thanks to Dick, the good folks at Western Area Power Administration, and Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation for their roles in this dramatic rescue!
