So, after months of working around the house and some major electrical modifications to the RV, I am finally on the road again! First stop after "mooch docking" at my favorite niece's home in Ann Arbor is the Canadian Raptor Conservancy near Simcoe, Ontario.
It was a perfect day for a photo shoot and CRC did not disappoint! We had a crowd of about 12 and in all, they flew and posed 10 different birds of 9 species. I will try to run down the list here:
Great-horned Owl -- Jack
Eastern Screech Owl pair -- Cecil (red) and Gordon (grey)
Harris Hawk -- A.Y. Jackson
Eurasian Eagle Owl -- Frodo (also seen in my selfie)
Red-tail Hawk -- Sadie
Lanner Falcon -- Dino
Bald Eagle -- Arnold
Baby Great-horned Owl -- Hayley
Barn Owl -- Delta
It never ceases to amaze me how many photo failures I amass, trying to get a few good ones! This batch represents "saves" from over 2,000 photos! There are more good images, but many just like what you see in the gallery below
Please check them out and let me know what you think.
