Luna is the rock star of the Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda, FL. Here’s a picture I took of PG’s adorable “leucistic” screech owl, born without feather pigment. (A hiker found Luna, probably only hours old, thinking someone had dropped a tissue on the ground.) The PRWC takes in and cares for wildlife patients, returning those that can survive to the wild. Luna’s white feathers make him vulnerable to predators, so he’s a permanent resident.
