In January 2014, a snowy owl was hit by a bus in Washington, D.C. Since some of its feathers were burned, scientists in a rehab center in Minnesota are using a procedure called imping to help it fly again. This traditional method will allow the bird’s feathers to be replaced with ones from other owls of the same species.
