Snowy Owl Ready To Be Released In MD

BERLIN, Md. (AP) – A snowy owl that was found injured at the Martin State Airport in Baltimore is ready to be released back into the wild.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says the owl has been rehabilitated and will be released Monday at Assateague State Park. When the female bird was found she had a broken wing that required surgery. The bird spent the summer recovering at the Maryland Zoo and is now ready to be released. 

Officials say the bird has been fitted with a small GPS device so that her movement can be tracked.
