Mother Screech Owl In Nest Box And Chick After Falling Out

Today 5/4/16 this baby screech owl fell out of the nest box when I opened it. It fell 10 feet. It was still opening it's mouth and I put it back in through the round opening. Any chance it will survive? I feel awful.

    Looks like it fell into some soft grass. I bet the little guy will be ok.

    Sweet mother and little baby… Those feet. 🙂 He looks fine. Like Robyn said, if he fell in the soft grass, I’m sure he’ll be all right. I know I would be mortified if it happened to me, of course. Post updates when you can!
