Unlikely neighbors at St. Ann’s Catholic Church
Levi Mallen, age 4, stepped in for a closer look on Sunday morning as this young barred owl hides against the wall at St. Ann’s Catholic church in Plattsburg. Levi is the son of Patrick and Laneah Mallen of Gower.
Parishioners at St. Ann’s were surprised Sunday when a barred owl came to visit. The owls were discovered as the church began to eliminate a tree on their property. Once they found the owl nest, the church stopped the removal of the tree until the young owls leave the nest. Only two babies remain.
The conservation department was called for advice on the situation.
Three barred owls were recently released back to the wild near Clarksdale, Mo. A resident was cutting down a partially dead tree when the owlets were discovered. A local conservation agent was able to transport the owlets to Lakeside Rehabilitation center at Swope Park in Kansas City. After spending more that a month there the juvenile owls were released.
According to the Conservation Department, four species of owls are usually found in northwest Missouri – Barred, Barn, Great-Horned and Screech owls.
