Snowy Owl Release

Willowbrook Releases a Snowy Owl

The Forest Preserve District's Willowbrook Wildlife Center releases a snowy owl on Dec. 1, 2017 to a DuPage forest preserve. 

The snowy owl was admitted to Willowbrook Wildlife Center in mid-November after it was found by our partner Chicago Bird Collision Monitors. Upon examination, Willowbrook staff found the owl had no major injuries but for a small wound at the base of a talon. The snowy owl remained at the center for two weeks where it received food, shelter and care during its recovery.
