*this appears to be a released pet leucistic axolotl, which we were able to capture, and are holding until pick up by someone locally who can care for it properly

Update :( unfortunately the person who took over caring for this little guy let us know that he passed away overnight on 18June - they had eaten, but were unable to keep food down (also, it was in rough shape when we found them - gills looked terrible, emaciated, and one eye was damaged/partly missing)

Some context/further details:
We found them in the creek behind where we live, which is a highly populated residential area. It seemed like they were “stuck/scared” (if we hadn’t found them I think they would have just stayed there until they died or were predated), and when we went down with a bucket they crawled right in. While waiting for the person we had found who has experience with them, they seemed to be accustomed to people/were approaching us in the temporary tub we’d set up for them. Also, my spouse had seen someone the previous day (it may have been 2 days prior) down in the creek (like maybe 10 metres away from where we found this wee one), which is not normal (we’re usually the only nature nerds around here!) and thinks they had an emptied bag when they left.

All that to say that although we have no proof that this was a very recent release of an already ill pet, it seems unlikely that they’d been living in the creek for much more than 24 hrs before we found them. I’m still glad we tried to help <3

We have seen a pair of barn owls clearly in our back yard everyday this week. I think they roost in our pine tree I see them when I take my dogs out in the morning. We have also seen them hunting around our property at dusk.

Experts - What is going on here? This male American Kestrel sure did seem to have the hots for this female Merlin. He kept trying to get close to her and even brought her a few treats (insects?) from the grass beneath the fence. She accepted the treats but didn't seem thrilled with the attention. However, when he flew off, she followed him...
