Barred Owl (Strix varia) by Amy Kay


Houston got offended when Bubo hooted at nothing 😂

Made with Instagram

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!!
