This afternoon we attended the 2013 International Festival of Owls in Houston. The event was amazing! There was a full house for the live animal show this afternoon and the girls were able to get their faces painted. Click play on the slideshow below to see 43 photos.
Yesterday I saw a Great Gray Owl, as did many others, in Wisconsin. You can see the Owl on the far left hand side of the photo perched in the tree.
Here is a closer look at the bird. Many of you will recall the 2005 irruption of Great Grays, were I first saw one at Trouts! It is interesting to see how people flock to owls, how we observe them, and how they captivate our hearts and mind.
