Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Bubo bubo)

 

Origin: Across Eurasia 

Sighted at: Sherwood Forest Faire, McDade, TX

I attended my very first Rennaisance Faire this past weekend, and was delighted by all of the sights and sounds and costumes and events. Nothing captivated me quite so much as the Sky Kings falconry show! They had an amazing selection of absolutely stunning birds. This magnificent owl was enormous! It swept over the crowd at the command of its trainer! I’ll have more amazing birds of prey to share this week!
