ROANOKE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A baby owl that fell out of its nest during high winds in Roanoke County has been returned to that nest.

The Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke says the Great Horned owlet was found in the Boones Mill area.

Due to its age, officials were concerned about it potentially imprinting on rehabbers, making it non-releasable, so they decided to return it to its nest.

The owlet was returned to its nest on Monday.
