Photos of the Day - 10/1/2014

While I took (and have uploaded) more photos from Saturday's Raptor Release, these are the last couple I'll be blog posting (for a while, at least).

Here's a great horned owl.  First a portrait, second stretching a wing.  Note that, in the second one, the bird's head is almost 180 degrees from the front.  I believe they said at the release that these owls can actually turn their head over 200 degrees (in each direction, so yes, they can cover 360 degrees quite quickly).
