Owl Moon Raptor Center is releasing another calendar for the new year in which 100% of the proceeds go to benefit the rescued birds located at their state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center in Maryland. The images in last year’s offering were absolutely amazing, and this year is proving to be no exception. This opportunity to obtain a great wall calendar for yourself all while supporting owl rehabilitation is only going to be available for as long as supplies last, so please act while you can. These things make perfect gifts that you can feel good about!

Solar Owl

Check out this pretty impressive solar owl my sister spotted while out window shopping. She said it was pretty impressive in size when she saw it while walking through Sears, but I was able to find it over at Hayneedle at much better prices! There’s even a smaller owl too! This would looks perfect on the corner of the deck!

Due do the intense storms we have been having lately, I finally had an excuse to light a highly treasured owl candle during a recent power outage. I typically hate burning novelty candles but this one was a special exception that gave a wonderful glow to my hot, summer evening.

How awesome!

Check out this amazing shot of two Barred Owls peeking out from their nest in Vermont. Our good friend (who we’ve lushed over before) has finally captured some owls to add to his impressive collection of wildlife photography. Congrats!

He has some amazing pictures featured on his blog as well as an avian centric flickr set to boot. It’s worth the clicks!

Thanks, Donnie!

One of this site’s good friends is Suzanne Shoemaker with the Owl Moon Raptor Center, a regional wildlife rehabilitation center that helps get our favorite creatures back into the wild. We’ve written about them before, but one of her recent blog posts was so great that I had to share some of their work again. Through talking with Suzanne I found that she rehabilitated a male bald eagle at one of my local parks, Maymont. I am always taking trips to see the various owl there, and was blown away when I found myself talking to the person who was responsible for finding these birds of prey a home within my favorite park. A recent blog post highlights the the Great Horned Owl’s breeding season and the owlets that were born there. There are some amazing pictures and anecdotes at the link so be sure to visit the post here for the full account of the wonderful work they are doing in Maryland and the owlets under her care.

Naked Owl

Ever wondered what an owl looks like under all those feathers? Thanks to the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen, we have a visual of a taxidermied Great Grey Owl that has essentially been cut in half to show the body mass that’s underneath all that plumage. Creep-tastic!

I spotted these garden owls while shopping at Target last night, and in typical fashion had to snap a pic and share with the site. Owls usually aren’t associated with spring, but they do find some love in the form of garden ornaments from time to time. They had more pieces available but I couldn’t fit them all into one picture! You can pick these up at your local store, and a few are even available on their site.
