She looks terrifying but this Long-eared Owl isn't much bigger than a pigeon. This is her threat pose, she's hoping to look fierce enough to scare off anyone. I'm a little late in posting her photo, she came to me the very end of December with a fractured right wing. Right now she's still wearing a pin in the bone but that should come out in a week or so.

She is non-flighted because the tendon at the leading edge of her wing was also damaged and couldn't be repaired enough for flight. At this time I'm working at having her placed as an educational bird in a facility permitted for that purpose. Are you just a little scared?
