Sullivan

Great Horned Owl
Bubo virginianus

Sullivan was brought to VINS in 2017 from Sullivan County, New Hampshire. She was found on the ground, unable to fly, a victim of an unknown trauma. Upon her intake examination at the Center for Wild Bird Rehabilitation, Sullivan was diagnosed with a fracture in her left shoulder. After treatment Sullivan still had restricted use of her left wing, and therefore was not able to fly well enough for release back to the wild. Instead, she joined Nassau as an exhibit ambassador, and showed her injury wouldn’t keep her from navigating to the highest branches to show visitors how such large birds blend in with their surroundings.
