Firstly i would like to say hi to all owl people.

We recived an 4 weeks old owlet with eyelids partaly closed. Now booth eyes are opened almost normally, and the owlet is now 10 weeks old, we have suspicion that she is completly blind. There is no response to a waving hand in front of her and responds, only to sound.




Do anyone here have any experience this field?
Any information would be welcome.

This may be no help as you may already know this. White-faced owls, like alot of owls are almost completely blind up close; this is why, when you go to stroke them they will gentally feel you with their beaks. Also, this species of owl hunts at dawn and dusk in the wild. The rest of the time they often sleep. If you are interacting with yours in
the day then he/she will be tired
