GHOW head different angles ref by Ciameth GHOW head different angles ref by Ciameth
Great Horned Owl head at different angles. These are all the same bird except for two in the middle: the angry, puffed up owl 3 across and 5 down, and the picture of the chick right beneath him. The main model is a permanent resident at a raptor rehabilitation center. His ear tufts are down in the majority of these images because they typically only go up when he is alarmed or upset. This guy is a patient, tolerant bird on the glove (he is frequently used to train inexperienced volunteers how to jess and handle a raptor for the first time), but there is one thing that never fails to immediately perk those ear tufts up: children. The other five Great-Horned Owls who live together at the center also appear to hate children (even well-behaved, quiet groups of children) and it is somewhat amusing to see all ear tufts raise simultaneously when a school tour group arrives.

Feel free to download for personal use. Not for photo-manipulation.

Heheh, I love the middle row/3rd from the left picture. Looks like an owl's version of "WHAZZUP?!" :D
