Jungle Owlet

Glaucidium radiatuam


I got this baby owl from a pet market, (they sometimes sell such wild birds caught by different people, although I think it's illegal)... I bought it because I want it to be released as an adult It can't fly I guess , no calls yet.. I have to take the food near its mouth to feed, won't feed on its own.... I have fed it small fish, cockroaches , chicken and shrimp

I read the blog of a wildlife rehabilitator who raised & sucessfully released an unidentified chick (turned out to be a owl). It was a hard, requiring lots of time, money, and space. Your birds best chance for survival is with an expert (wildlife rehabilitator, rescue organization, (zoo?, veterinarian?). In the meantime, is it eating live food? She put minnows in it's water dish, feeder goldfish would probably be a fine substitute.

Yes plz post it

Thanks Kristin

Perhaps Sanctuary Asia can help with an ID and/or put you in touch with a rescue organization. They have a lot of info in the Resources section, and photos & descriptions of owls & other birds from India & Asia. Looks a bit like a Jungle Owlet, but that's a total guess.
