A female little owl (Athena noctua) at Centro Fauna Selvatica “Il Pettirosso” near Modena, Italy.
This owl was found in early December, most likely suffering from head trauma likely due to a crash. After one week she was placed in a large aviary with 3 other owls, and just a month later she was released back into the wild.
The odd shape of this little owl’s pupil is unique, but she has no vision problems. It is simply an aesthetic blemish from birth.
