Hey Bill......can you share Ruth's story with us? What's the history behind the missing leg and damaged wing? Unfortunately, Barn Owls never appear robust and healthy, except in flight and then they're gorgeous and soooooo quiet.

Sorry Benjamin, I don't know the back story, and DP is now long ago and far away for me. Hopefully Ruth is still around and someone could ask the ranger.

The sign next to Ruth says they found her on the ground wounded as a baby near the out buildings. She's doing fine. We saw her eat a rat, she had a great time pulling it apart with her talons and sharp beak.
