Laz the Screech Owl

Laz blends in very well doesn’t he?  Some of the birds were on display (but tethered to perches or trees) while others were brought out on the well gloved hands of staff – still tethered though.  There were also other birds in enclosures; some you couldn’t and shouldn’t go in and one – with the song birds – that you could walk through.   Several of the animals are ambassadors that go to schools and other places to educate people about the different species.

The Ohio Bird Sanctuary was founded in 1988 to take care of birds that have been injured until they can be released into the wild or to give a home to those that can no longer live in the wild because of having imprinted on humans or being too injured to survive in the wild.

    It’s always so great to hear of people taking care of our companions in Nature.

    You have a way of photographing animals and flowers, that captures a certain beauty/feeling. Often love your city and nature work too, but these have something special
