Dylan, an Eastern screech owl, came to the ABEF in 2010. He was treated at the Southeastern Raptor Center in Alabama for a detached retina in his right eye, which impairs his vision. He is a rufous morph, which means he is a reddish-brown color.

Dylan can fly silently from one end of his aviary to the other during training sessions and enjoys pouncing on enrichment. Sometimes he can be hard to see because he is relaxing in his nest box or camouflaging on leafy perches. Eastern screech owls are crepuscular. This means that Dylan is more active during dawn and dusk. In the evenings, he sometimes lets out his high-pitched trill.
