This is a baby Barn Owl and that is my leg and boot in these photographs. Pretty cool, huh? This not-so-little critter is one of the newest charges at Sweetbriar Nature Center. It is a captive bred owl and it was given to Sweetbriar for educational purposes. When fully mature, Barn owls are truly magnificent animals and this young beauty is a very welcome addition to the Sweetbriar family.
