I’m going to let you in on a little secret. It’s “Owl” week! After enjoying the darling little Owlets in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, and the Birds of Prey photography workshop last weekend at Carrie Murray Nature Center I’ve been on owl overload.
Now that we’ve seen baby Great Horned Owls, it’s now time to enjoy an adult Great Horned Owl. With their bright yellow eyes, and their tufted ears, what’s not to love? Also known as a Hoot Owl, these owls are one of the largest owls in the Americas.
These owls have been admired by the Native American for their “strength, courage and beauty,” and the Pima of the Southwest believed them to be reincarnations of slain warriors.
A truly beautiful Bird of Prey that I hope one day graces your day.
