Today a group of us went to the Mountsberg Raptor Centre to take pictures of several birds of prey. Many of these birds have permanent injuries which have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild. Often, these injuries are caused by human activity. Now they live at the centre and provide visitors a chance to experience them up close and learn how we can reduce our negative impact on them. The Screech Owl is quite small – only about 6 – 8 inches, 16 – 18 cm tall.

Over the next few days I will post more portraits of these beautiful Raptors!

  1. I really like the textures of the wood and feathers and the way the eyes kind of draw you in. Nice shot!
