Hawk and Owl

Wild Bird Wednesday.

I don't have any new pictures of wild birds today so I'm sharing some bird photos from a few years ago. These raptors are in benign captivity, having been rescued and treated and now serving as animal ambassadors, making educational appearances to the public. 

The red-tailed hawk and barn owl were shown by staff members of a non-profit called Secret Garden Birds and Bees



  1. Love the Barn Owl. Great photos.
    Take care, enjoy your day!

  2. Are they also used for captive breeding, do you know?

    1. Not that I have heard of. They probably like a specific environment for breeding; a home territory safe for hatchlings.

  3. What great photos, it's as if they are thinking something important, if only cameras could read their minds!

  4. Oh these are worth seeing anytime! Thank you
