Fabulous capture and edit Cher. I can't get over the detail you can obtain with your camera. The story behind Chomper is so interesting. It shows so much that these creatures are not meant to live with humans, at least ones who don't know how to take care of them and feed them as they should be fed. I am so glad he was rescued. Thank you also for the History behind the Great Horned Owl, always new things to learn!

I was wondering how you got so close to this bird. They normally don't let anyone anywhere near. Gorgeous shot

When I was young I have seen that stare from many a teacher who always said on my report card that I should spend less time socializing and more time paying attention. Lol. Great shot and description.

Great Horned Owl Named Chomper

Chomper is a Great Horned Owl. He is a human imprinted bird who was taken from the wild as a baby by a family who attempted to raise and keep him as a pet. He was fed inappropriate food and grew ill as a fledgling. His favourite snacks are a wide range of prey items ranging from mice to rabbits, squirrels, and other mammals, as well as birds and sometimes even other raptors. With almost no sense of smell, Great Horned Owls often prey on skunks! Owls are powerful birds and fiercely protective parents. They have even been known to attack humans who wander too close to their young.
