A female Barn Owl. She is a permanent resident at a raptor rehabilitation facility due to her badly fractured right wing, broken while she was kept illegally as a pet. She now serves as an education bird in public presentations.

That is so sad. It's depressing how many captive owls are ones found at zoos or learning centers because someone kept them illegally or they were injured by human activity.

Other than that, though, this is a nice portrait :)

Wow, you got a perfect 3/4 angle on the face of the bird there. And I love it how you can see two distinct sources of lighting in this - a harsh, bright one coming from the right, and a softer, more filtered source on the left. A painting could not have had more fortuitous lighting ^^

Owls are always wonderful to see in the wild! I wish I had more time to go birdwatching in the evening/night/dawn hours.

yeah it's great to see wild animals in the wild , but sadly i live in a big city ... and i had a chance in a million , to photograph an owl (it was midday and there were 2 owls:D) , in the half day when i was outside the big city :P
