One Owl

Nate and Nan are in their second season with their tame, fascinating, and often frustrating great horned owl. The bird does take game, and it makes for an expansion of "hawking" hours for two busy people (Nan's store here) and great pictures, but as Nate said: ".. I had a horned owl kick my ass over a field mouse this morning."

The second picture is quite amusing, but I've seen a GHO's talons. How on earth is that not causing a headache?

I heard stories about this owl from Brian during my Amarillo trip. Great work on the falconer's part! Would love to see some video if there is any.
