The Great Horned Owl. What a majestic bird.

Taken at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre where 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.

      • I’m back – just looking at the raptor site online – it is more or less in my backyard! (Well, within an hour’s drive.) Will have to make an effort to pay them a visit!
