This is Echo, an Eastern Screech Owl. She was the only one in her family that was saved when the tree that they called home was cut down. She has imprinted with humans therefore can never be released into the wild ;( She lives permanently at Mountsberg Conservation Area where she helps educate the public. I met her through Ray Barlow where she poses for photographers and the money helps pay for her upkeep. I love how they have feathers on their eyelids.
