The night hunters

 On Salt Spring Island half of all birds

 of prey rescued have been owls.                                            

Owls frequently hunt rodents in the short grasses alongside roadways and are all too often struck by passing vehicles. After enduring many days and nights in a ditch by the side of the road, this Barred

Owl was able to make a complete recovery. 

                           Saw-whet Owls (juv.)                                                     Screech-owl

Great Horned Owl                             Pygmy Owl                                         Barn Owl
