Final in the series: ‘Willow, The American Barn Owl’
Near Smithville, upstate NY, USA. November 2010
A follow up visit to a friend’s ranch whom is a Master Falconer. Being so close to these amazing Birds of Prey was exhilarating!
Meet Willow, he is 3yrs old.
What a special and amazing treat for me to photograph, and my family to see and touch. All just 5 minutes from my home!
See my main page for the rest in this series and a peak at Sasha, The Harris’ Hawk and very special friend, Gizmo, The Spectacled Owl.
