A barred owl stands on a moss-covered log while looking at its reflection in a pool of water. This stunning photo was taken by teacher Bill McMullen at an outdoor learning centre near Cumberland in Ontario, Canada. Picture: Bill McMullen/Solent News
Had a cool surprise in conservation bio today! The biologist that came to speak about owl conservation has this gorgeous barred owl that was rehabilitated after being hit by a car. Due to her friendliness and lack of depth perception (she lost lens) she couldn’t be released and now lives with the biologist! She’s 3 and a half and her name is Kernel. She was very soft and sweet!!
