Look what springtime brought to DVWR, a fledgling Saw-whet Owl! Rare for Nevada, Saw-Whet owls are only 8″ tall when full grown.
Many baby Desert Cottontails are brought to DVWR in the spring for various reasons. Their round tails are dark on top and white underneath resembling a cotton ball and their large ears radiate body heat, cooling them during the hot summer months.
Many thanks to Girl Scout Troop 317! The hard-working troop designed, raised money for materials, built & set-up a new flight pen. Troop Leaders Lesli Spears and Robin Fowler with Scouts Emma, Neva, Lauren, Page, Hailey, Soleil, Raechel, Lexi, Sophia and Katrina did a remarkable job and the first resident settled right in.
