Not much to report, really. The GHO has one more treatment for capillaria this week and then, weather cooperating, he’s good to go. Below are a couple of short videos of our unhappy camper. Listen closely for the beak click in the first one. That beak is powerful, capable of snapping a chicken thigh bone. And his big ol’ feet? Approximately 500 pounds per square inch pressure in each foot. Combine that with those large and very powerful wings, and it’s no wonder great horned owls are capable of lifting and flying away with a 9-pound prey animal!
Do remember that the 2015 LWR calendars, featuring 12 full-color photos of some of this year’s intakes, are available through Lulu.com for $16.50 plus shipping. US, UK, and Canadian holidays are featured.
