04 Barred Owl as guest at University talk
Photo taken on 4 February 2009 and posted on Flickr on 27 February 2009.
I just find this image rather amusing, seeing this little Barred Owl sitting in front of an audience. The gentleman who gave the talk at the University brought this injured, 7-year-old male owl with him and it was a neat experience to see a Barred Owl so close (even to touch him). He just sat and stared the whole evening : ) His eyes are amazing - like deep, dark pools.
