Athena, a Barn owl (Tyto Alba), just like Ivan, was hit by a car while hunting prey running across the road. Getting hit by cars is the most common cause of raptor injuries. Athena lost her eyesight in one eye, and now has depth perception problems that cause her to miss her perches at times, meaning that she would also miss much of her prey. She is fully flighted, and perfect in every other way. Her age is unknown – our guess is that she was around 2 years old when adopted in 2012.
