CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Animal control officers picked up a rare, barred albino owl last Saturday in Cedar Falls.

The owl was thin and dehydrated.

Now it’s at the Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project getting healthier, eating more and doing well.

“He’s a little bit on the light side weight wise, but nothing dangerous so we brought him back here with the idea that were just going to observe for a short period of time before we make any kind of decision,” said Linda Nebbe, a wildlife rehabilitator.

The owl was born in Cedar Falls and his family’s nest is there.

Nebbe says they’re not sure what future plans are yet, but the owl may go to an educational exhibit.
