Great Horned Owl

Great Horned Owl

It’s easy to see why Owls are one of the biggest attractions at the Center for Birds of Prey. Trained to participate in the Center’s Environmental Education programs, they tend to sit calmly on a perch giving a wonderful opportunity to see them up close. This Great Horned Owl, however, was intent on getting on the ground for a few minutes.

His handler waited for him to look around and settle.

After a bit he went back to the perch and showed off with a lovely pose.
