Great Horned Owl



This morning when I went to the church for Sewing Day, I learned that a Great Horned Owl was on the church grounds. A lady out for her morning walk spotted him and called our pastor. They corralled it so it wouldn't get into the street and get run over. Poor thing couldn't fly either because it was too young or had been hurt. The police came with a cage to hold the owl until the Game Warden could come get it. Very beautiful bird. We were fortunate to be able to see it up close and personal!

Wow, he is beautiful! Did Jerry manage to baptise it? LOL Too bad it couldn't stay around for the kids to see it, what an awesome opportunity.
