Our Screech Owl


Here's a selfie with our Screech Owl.  She is not even 5 inches tall.  She is a 'grey phase' Screech as opposed to the tawny color that our hawk is.  She is blind in one eye; we get our birds from raptor rehab centers when they cannot be released back to the wild.
Here in the palm of my hand is one of her feathers.  Diminutive and so dear.

  1. Oh Anni - the picture of the feather is so sweet - tender even. Your owl looks slightly petite - adorable. I'm sure the color is beautiful in person. How fantastic that you shared this with us. Thank you!
