Free the Owls!!

Owls behind bars - what kind of people are we? Well, this is a little screech owl who apparently flew into an ugly glass building on campus. He was sitting at the base of the building Friday morning, being as hunched up and inconspicuous as possible, but still tending to draw a crowd since he was on the sidewalk just off a major walking route from parking lot to the center of campus. A professor from biology brought the cage up, and we called a wildlife rehab person, who came later in the day to pick him up. The juice botle in the background was a warm water bottle for the owl in case his/her temp was low (good thing to remember for stunned birds - they might need to warm up).
On knitting fronts, the candle flame shawl is coming along, though I'm wondering what size I'll get out of these 3 skeins. Some calculations yesterday on excel gave me a height of 24" from the point of the triangle to the long side that goes across the shoulders. Doesn't quite seem like a full shawl. Does that size make for a hippie head wrap? Or a pleasant dash of color scarf kind of thing?
