It's So Great to Have Norbert Back

I'm at a meeting for some new educational displays that are going up at The Raptor Center.

I love having Norbert back so I can do quick blog entries on the sly...

While looking for some photos of great gray owls for one of the education panels, I came across the Flickr account of Mariah Tigger. It looks like she used to be a vet in the TRC clinic, I recognize the treatment room:

Here is a great gray owl in the TRC treatment room. Notice how big and puffy the head is. You can also see the puffy head of a great gray in my profile shot on the blog.

Now, here is a photo of a great gray owl in the anesthesia cone on its head before it's examined. They really are just giant balls of fluff.
