I posted this image of a screech owl (upper photo) on Flickr some time ago. For reasons I cannot fathom, it has gotten more views than any other picture I ever posted, 41,576, I think. I took it at the little zoo we have in Sanford. A bird demo was going on, so it was easy to get nice closeups of the little guys. The birds are all rescued, and unfit to return to the wild. This poor little guy has a wonky eye. I actually thought the barred owl shown below was better looking and a better picture. What do I know?
