Barred Owl Renest

Here is a fantastic video made by one of our volunteers, Garrett Kipp of the renesting of two juvenile barred owls whose nest was blown down in a storm.  After only a few days (and a few free meals) at The Wildlife Center of Venice, they were given a clean bill of health and were ready to be sent back to their new, sturdier nest.  Thanks to Mike and Tammy Kipp for another perfectly executed renest.

At the Wildlife Center of Venice (501c3 Non-Profit), we are committed to the preservation, rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife in our local community.  We service all of Sarasota and West Charlotte counties in the State of Florida. We work hard each day to uphold these values, but we need each and every one of you to help us in this noble cause.
