Boreal owls

Boreas, the boreal owl at The Raptor Center
 Boreas is a boreal owl, and one of TRC's winged ambassadors.  Boreas was admitted to The Raptor Center’s clinic after being found in a parking ramp in downtown Duluth, Minn. The cause of his injury was unknown, but during his physical exam he was found to have substantial ocular damage (eye injuries). After two months of observation and visits with the ophthalmologist, it was determined that Boreas was un-releasable due to his sight deficiency.
