We saw this baby owl in perched in a tree right outside our window in our backyard. It was one of 3 baby owls. My two little boys, 1 and 5 years old, were amazed by them. Luckily, I was able to get close enough to capture a good picture because they only visited one evening, and we haven't seen them since.

Photo Description During the visit, this Spotted Eagle Owl would fly from the one trainer to the other. What I found most amazing was the virtual silence with which an owl flies. At the end, we also had the opportunity to pose for a photo with one of the birds of prey.
During the recent school holidays, we visited the SA National Birds of Prey Centre. The centre focuses on the rehabilitation of different types of birds of prey. They use falconry methods to train the birds, and to prepare them to re-enter nature. Unfortunately, only those that are 100% fit will survive in nature, so the centre also plays a big part in education and breeding.

Early January winter morning in South Western Ontario, I traveled along a country road and spotted this beautiful Snowy Owl in a farmer's field, only about 100 feet from the road. I used my 500mm lens to capture over 150 pictures. A sign of peace and beauty on a windy winter day.

Beautiful female snowy white owl on the shores of Lake Ontario, just east of downtown Toronto. This was a cold Saturday in January.

This is our baby owl. It was on our road and wouldn't move when I drove by it so my husband brought it to the house. We fed it then put it up in the woods so it's mother could take care of it. We have people around here that would have probably run over the poor thing.

This was taken from our recent trip to the Hogle Zoo in Utah, I thought it turned out great the way he's looking right at us.
These are burrowing ventriloquist owls. The male is looking a bit to the side and faking a rattlesnake rattle with his ventriloquist act.
I live near Braddock Bay Rapture Park where these owls stop by for a month during migration season. I was lucky enough to see this little guy this week
We had a visitor in the month of November! A beautiful owl who epitomizes humanity's love-hate relationship with nature. You see, he perched every evening on the roof to wake up, and as all birds do, had to do his business. Luckily it never hit the car!
