Oh, Owls!

One of the things I always like about going to these little local festivals is that they sometimes have booths from the local animal rescue people. In the case of today's Cortez Heritage shin-dig, there was a booth from the bird people. Two of the birds on display were these owls. Above is a little tiny screech owl, not much bigger than a large blue jay, but still a fierce hunter. The much larger guy below is a barred owl. He's about the size of a, well, about the size you expect for an owl. They had a couple of others birds that weren't as exciting that I didn't get decent pictures of, and one other one that I thought was so great, I'm giving him his own post. So stay tuned for that.
