This evening, there was an eagle owl (Bubo bubo) in the laboratory sink, having oil washed out of her feathers, followed by a blow dry. Arild Breistøl held her legs, displaying her huge talons, Linn Krüger kept her wings from flailing, while Frode Falkenberg washed with washing-up liquid and warm water.
She arrived from Austevoll, ansouth-west of Bergen, where she somehow got oil in her feathers and was now weak (but still strong enough to flight) and unable to fly.
She weighs 2340g (somewhat less that she should), but now her prognosis is good (especially if she likes Whooper Swan).
Thanks to Cathy Jenks for the photographs.
