VIENNA, W.Va. — After a week in unfamiliar territory in Wood County, a snowy owl from the Arctic Circle has been rescued to get some care for the injuries it suffered.
Julie Zickefoose, a contributing editor to “Bird Watcher’s Digest” and a freelance writer and naturalist, said the bird, which appeared to have a broken wing, has been taken into the care of the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia in Morgantown.
Zickefoose said another snowy owl in the state was in the Morgantown area and was killed after being hit by a car.
