Owlie, the Great Horned Owl

Owlie, the Great Horned Owl.
 
One of the beautiful birds we photographed while we visited the Teton Raptor Center was this Great Horned Owl. Hopefully my memory is correct and its name is Owlie, named by a child, but I like it. This bird is another one of their educational birds, meaning it can’t be released into the wild, but will serve as an educational ambassador to all of us. Becky, the handler/educator, obviously has a great relationship with the birds as they respond to her very well. It was more than a few times that Owlie would “hoot” at her and they would have little conversations with each other. I have said on numerous times, please support your local centers, even better make sure you take a kid to one, so they can learn about these beautiful animals and hopefully they will do one thing that will help protect them while in the wild.

  1. Are there any facilities in the Atlanta metropolitan area to film captured birds?
    Thanks

      I know there are in the area. There are also some at Callaway Gardens. There are many falconers that show their birds too.
