Sharon Audubon - This owl was hit by a car and sustained a wing injury, which did not heal properly. She also had a broken toe that resulted in the loss of a talon. She now lives at Sharon Audubon, and her name is Herra.
Every year, the Sharon Audubon Center admits more than 300 birds, mammals, and reptiles to their wildlife rehabilitation program with the goal of providing care for injured or orphaned wildlife, and then releasing them back into the wild.
