If you are lucky enough to survive a collision with something manmade, sometimes you have a new life experience, if you are a bird. This little screech owl is the newest member of the Black Hills Raptor Center's (www.blackhillsraptorcenter.org/) education team. She has detached retinas in both eyes, so she can not be released back in to the wild. The Earth Day celebration was her first real experience with lots of human admirers. This is her daytime "camouflage pose", feathers pulled in and sitting very upright to blend in to her environment. What a gorgeous little creature.
