Glenn Prichard our friend to the blog and  builder and owner of  Nature's Remedy owlboxes  received a call about a barn owl on the ground. The owlet who's "nest" was inside a wall about 20 feet up was taken to Placerita Nature Center. It will be examined thoroughly there and then be sent to a rahab facility in Simi Valley where it will learn to hunt along with other barnies its same age. It will be released right where Glen found it so it can reunite with its family.
