Barn Owl Landing

This Barn Owl, Cupid, was part of a raptor workshop that I took in November of 2016.  I think he’s appropriately named, because with those white wings he looked almost like a little angel, and I could just imagine him using those penetrating eyes like an arrow on someone.

From Cornell’s “All About Birds” website:  “By night, they hunt on buoyant wingbeats in open fields and meadows. You can find them by listening for their eerie, raspy calls, quite unlike the hoots of other owls. Despite a worldwide distribution, Barn Owls are declining in parts of their range due to habitat loss.”
