This owl was rescued by a forester who saw a tramp walking with her swinging her by her legs - she was about to become his meal. Was hit by a car and had a badly broken wing and leg and cannot be released back into the wild. I love her make up Smile
Thanx for every vote and comment on yesterday's eagle pic - much appreciated !!
