This barred owl was captured at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Homosassa, Florida.
I was surprised to see the blue eyes. (Now I know from Ted Busby that the blue is a reflection of the sky in the owl’s deep eyes.) I love the coloring and the feather pattern, as well as the face on this owl. The park has many birds in its care, most of which have permanent wing injuries.
