Police say the baby Northern Saw-whet owl was lying on the sidewalk near a car wash.  Patrice Mehu brought the owl to Salem Police station.

Salem Police believe the owl had an injured wing.

The Northern Saw-whet owl, a species that’s small even when full-grown, is native to forested areas in the Northeast.

Police brought the owl to wildlife rehabilitation specialist David Taylor in Byfield. Taylor was planning on bringing the owl to a veterinarian to nurse it back to health.
