This is another (late) installment of mom's visit to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge up north of us near Sherman TX. The Raptor Project was there doing an educational show about raptor birds. We don't like seeing birds in captivity like this but as noted in my last post, most have been injured in some way so the Raptor Project took them in to care for them as they would not make it in the wild.
Mom met a lot of new owl friends for me!
From the cutest, like this Gray Morph Screech Owl, who lives in the Americas...
To the largest owl of all, the Eagle Owl, common in the UK!
Yikes, look at those talons! He could carry a little JellyBean like me away! I think this might be a Barred Owl.
This Snowy White Owl, is well, very snowy and showy!
And here is the very smallest of owls, the Burrowing Owl!
