I found it fascinating about the different talons on the owls determine their diet. I didn’t know this. I assumed all owls eat rodents. I was amazed at the Eurasian Eagle owl’s talons. I found out they can take down a small deer! Truly amazing birds!
Thank you for offering this course! Owls are amazing birds. I have seen quite a few. I would really like to see a Snowy Owl but I live in a part of the US that doesn’t have that owl! This is a barred owl that was photographed in Lower Suwannee NWR, in Florida. I was also fortunate enough to watch and photography juvenile Great Horned Owls. I have also seen Burrowing Owls. They are smaller than I thought they would be. I did see a Eurasian Eagle Owl as well but this was because the owl was in a rehabilitation facility and cannot be released into the wild again.
