Great Horned Owl

Here are some photos from today’s photo shoot at Carrie Murray Nature Center. There were aa nummber of folks from the Arundel Camera Club and one from the Bowie-Crofton Camera Club. They started out with a couple of great horned owls, then a barred owl, followed by a barn owl. I had to leave before they brought out the screech owls, the red tailed hawk, or the turkey vulture. They always move the birds to photogenic perches based on suggestions from the photographers. They also strive to hide the leashes used to secure them to the trees. All of these birds are rescued.
