The owl was in a critical condition upon being found by museum officials.

LAST WEEK AN Australian powerful owl (Ninox strenua) was found on the steps of the Australian Museum in Sydney, injured and in a critical condition.

After staff found the owl languishing, biologist Jodi Rowley from the Royal Botanical Gardens Sydney took the bird to Taronga Conservation Society’s Wildlife Hospital.

After a week of care, the powerful owl recovered from its injuries and was released back into the Royal Botanical Gardens.
