More Owls

Owl 1

I met brave little Rupert at the Midsummer Night Party. He is a rescue and found severely wounded. After his recovery, he remained blind in one eye and he cannot return to the wild. However, he is so comfortable with human beings that he helps out now with the educational programs of Raptor.Inc.

Ik ontmoette dit dappere uiltje Rupert, op t Midzomernacht feest. Omdat hij blind is in 1 oog kan hij niet terug naar de natuur. Gelukkig voelt hij zich volkomen op zijn gemak bij mensen en helpt hij bij educatieve programma’s verzorgt door de roofvogelopvang.

Love and Liefs, Johanna

  1. How wonderful for Rupert! How many owls can say they’ve had their portraits done! We went to a similar sanctuary in Florida and I thought it was such a fine place. I still felt bad that the birds could never be wild again but they had such an important job, of educating humans!

  2. Beautiful rendition, Johanna! I love that they take some of these injured animals that otherwise would just perish and give them a second chance. And it gives us the opportunity to get up close and personal! 🙂
