Eastern Screech Owl (Megascops asio)
Ruby is around 6 years old.
She was hit by a car in Wisconsin and it damaged her left eye. We believe she is partially blind in that eye.
Ruby weighs about 8 oz or half a water bottle. She eats 1 mouse a night and will only eat white mice.
The tufts on top of Ruby's head are commonly mistaken for ears. These are actually to help her camouflage and her real ears are holes on either side of her head, hidden underneath feathers.
