Echo was transferred to Mountsberg from the Guelph Lake Nature Centre where she was raised for the first year of her life. Eastern Screech-Owls are cavity nesters and will often utilize an old woodpecker hole in a dead tree as a nest site. Unfortunately for Echo, her nest tree was cut down and she was the only chick to survive. When she was found, she was taken to Guelph Lake and raised by the staff there. As a result, she is human imprinted.
