A Great Horned Owl
So I got excited, 'cause I'm so fascinated by wildlife, and I wrote to an expert who runs the site Owling.Com. I never thought "to owl" could be a verb!
Here's a piece of what he wrote:
"Yep, great photo of a young Great Horned Owl. It is a very young bird and probably still under the care of mom and dad. It still has lots of its downy juvenile plumage and has not yet grown adult feathers (first year bird)."This giant owl is a baby!? How cool is that?! I could just stare at it all day. Maybe it felt the same about me...
