Thank you to UW Arborists Aaron Gilmore and Andy Thurlow for assisting Lakeshore Nature Preserve and Dane County Human Society Wildlife Center in reuniting a barred owlet to a cavity nest and then nesting box in Fratuschi Point. The immature owlet was found on the ground by a concerned visitor, not once but twice. Appreciation to UW Grounds Jennifer Kolste, Tree & Shrub Supervisior and Ellen Agnew, Building and Grounds Manager for permitting these skilled, climbing arborists to assist. Thanks also to Richard Ness, UW Animal Control Specialist for support.
