I once knew a screech owl that liked to have the top of his head scritched; he would close his eyes and lean into you while you did it. I wish, oh, how I wish, that such fantastic music accompanied those moments as they do in this video. (Especially when they focus in on Mr. Grumpy Great Horned.)
I have no idea where this was taken, but the birds sure look happy and healthy, which pleases me substantially. Enjoy!
At the Nature Center we do a limited amount of raptor rehab. Last year we were able to successfully release three beautiful raptors after they healed from injuries. Suzie Gilbert is a passionate rehabber and this beautiful video tells a piece of her story. Enjoy!
If you’re interested in learning more about Suzie or raptor rehab, check out these two books, written by her:
