Imagine a tranquil classroom, a sanctuary of learning, suddenly stirred by an unanticipated guest – one with feathers, keen eyes, and an air of curiosity. A video captured this very scene at Trident Technical College, where students found themselves under the scrutiny of an unexpected observer: a baby owl.
Perched just beyond the window, the diminutive sentinel gazed at the eager learners with an enigmatic stare. This young great horned owl, having tumbled from its arboreal abode, chanced upon the school grounds and, inquisitively, inspected the human denizens within. The fall had been a frightful descent, yet the owlet appeared unscathed.
To ensure the little avian’s well-being, the compassionate souls at the Center for Birds of Prey spirited him away for a thorough examination. Once deemed fit, he returned to his sylvan sanctuary, awaiting a reunion with his family.
As the days pass and the young owl matures, he will transform into an agile and fearsome nocturnal predator, a silent scourge to any unsuspecting mouse, hare, vole, or rabbit. Those enormous eyes, which once captivated the students, will become instruments of precision in the twilight realm.
We can thank Tom Craven and John Long for their swift and nurturing response and John Long’s wife, who escorted the little winged one to the Center for Birds of Prey. Indeed, the entire community seemed to embrace their newfound feathery friend.
Some have even proposed adorning college T-shirts with the owl’s likeness – a fitting tribute to this enigmatic visitor. And in due course, as the owl secures its position as a campus guardian, both the school and the owl will find themselves in a mutually beneficial arrangement.
