252 Eyes of the wise

A gorgeous Great Horned Owl seen at the Coaldale Bird of Prey Centre yesterday. I actually had this beautiful bird sit on my hand - the most amazing feeling! I was also lucky enough to hold a tiny Burrowing Owl. It is so much fun photographing the birds at this Centre, but of course there is nothing like photographing them in the wild. We seem to have SO many Great Horned Owls in Calgary, LOL! No wonder it was chosen as the Provincial Bird.
