I'm glad she's receiving help from Carlton Burke and I hope she survives and can return healthy to the wild.
Hopefully Burke can arrange her release back into the wild in the north, somewhere in Northern Canada or the Arctic, so she can enjoy the life she was born to and deserves.

Thanks Barb for posting.

What a little beauty! It is amazing that Tundra normally found in Canada ended up in North Carolina! I'm happy to see that Carlton Burke, a longtime bird rehabilitation expert is taking care of her. I hope that she soon will be well! Thanks Barb. It is a real treat to see a Snowy Owl which I've never seen before.

I love the video from the beginning where the first gentleman kept calling her beautiful. The whole thing is like a mini vacation for me seeing Tundra, seeing the area, and listening to the nice people.

Is it common to find mal-nutritioned owls? If so, there should be lots out there. Then Tundra is lucky to have been spotted.
