    Excellent photo Chuck, these birds need to be seen in person to appreciate the grandeur of this magnificent bird!

  • That is for sure, Jade; Just the size of this bird is awesome, it make you wonder way you don’t see more of them in the wild. I saw one for a second this summer, then it was gone.

    I hear them quite often Chuck but haven’t seen one in a while, they’re so nocturnal. Scared one out of what I thought was a Wood duck house while I was in Delaware last Thanksgiving!

    Wonderful shot..They are such beautiful birds.

  • Thank you Donna, they are a beautiful bird but I wouldn’t want to be a mouse and see that coming at me.

    Love your title, Chuck, this is a spectacular image, what beautiful eyes and feathers! You sure can get a lot of info from a closeup!

  • Thanks Dee, you will just have to come up to Eugene and meet him up close at the Cascade Raptor Center.
