The barn owl that was rescued in Orange County by firefighters on Tuesday night from the flames of the Silverado Fire is recovering nicely, in some much needed good news.\nThe large owl was brought to the Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital in Lake Forest to be treated for burns after firefighters scooped him up out of the flames and into one of their yellow jackets.\nHe stared up at the men, letting them handle him, and then calmly sat wrapped in the jacket on one of their laps, as he was transferred to the hospital.\nEditor's Choice: Dallas County Has Now Had Enough COVID-19 Cases To Fill Cowboys Stadium And The AAC\n\nHe's doing a lot better now, though — the Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital posted this update today to their Instagram showing him swirling his head around and screeching like a little raptor.\n View this post on Instagram We've got an update on the Silverado Canyon fire owl! After a hard day, he got a good night's rest and some food. Today he was re-evaluated by our vets and is still pulling strong! He got some pain meds and more food this morning. One of our staff members got a video while cleaning his cage. As you can see, he's got some attitude! Definitely feeling better! @ocbpc A post shared by Serrano Animal & Bird Hospital (@serranoanimalandbird) on Oct 28, 2020 at 11:32am PDT\n\nEarlier in the week, it was a pretty bleak situation for this owl.\nEarlier this evening one of our crews on a brush rig rescued a barn owl from the flames of the #SilveradoFire. He’s safe and sound and currently with animal control. pic.twitter.com/L7VycEx3qd— OCFA PIO (@OCFA_PIO) October 28, 2020\n\n Most of the owl's injuries were due to burned feathers.\n View this post on Instagram This is our first time victim of the Silverado Canyon Fires. After an exam by our doctors, it was determined that most of his injuries are burned feathers. We are not sure how bad his smoke inhalation damage is. We will have to hold onto him for a number of months until he molts new feathers. Once he gets new feathers, he will be able to be released. @ocbpc A post shared by Serrano Animal & Bird Hospital (@serranoanimalandbird) on Oct 27, 2020 at 9:00pm PDT\n\nThe Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital has been helping to evacuate other animal organizations affected by the fire.\n View this post on Instagram Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones during this tragic event. Yesterday, Dr. Weldy and a few staff members assisted the Orange County Zoo in their evacuation. All animals and employees are safe. The Orange County Bird of Prey Center also had been voluntary evacuated. The Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital is housing many evacuated animals from other hospitals and wildlife centers. Stay safe everyone!
