A baby screech owl rescued by staffers at a suburban Philadelphia arboretum will be released back into the wild Wednesday night after he was nursed back to health at a nearby nature center.
The owl, aptly named "Owlbert Barnes" will return to the wild at 7 p.m. at the Barnes Arboretum in Merion Station. Staffers at the Barnes Arboretum, which previously housed the Barnes Foundation art collection, found Owlbert with an injured wing at the arboretum in March.
