Stately Great Horned Owl
I went for a hike in the forest on Monday and saw a murder of crows of making a big commotion and dive bombing this Great Horned Owl who seemed quite unperturbed. I was able take several frames at a distance before this stately bird flew from its tormentors. This image is severely cropped but it is what it is !
The ears of a Great Horned Owl behave somewhat like a dog's ears. When the owl is content or merely curious, they are upright. When the owl is upset or angry the ears flop down close to the head !
