This afternoon I drove back to the area where the Short Eared Owls had taken up residence. About halfway there it started to snow. However there were two females, one sitting in a tree out in the middle of the field and the other, a young one, sitting in a tree right beside the road. Such pretty girls! 🙂
This morning I attended a workshop at the Mountsberg Conservation area’s Raptor Centre. The centre currently has approximately 15 species of birds of prey that have suffered permanent injuries that leave them incapable of defending themselves in the wild. Our ambassador for the morning, Sandra was wonderful and very knowledgable. I could certainly tell that this was not a job for her, but a passion. I will be featuring some of the birds over the next few days in the LTTL project. For today, this little girl is a Screech Owl. She was wonderful to photograph!
