Captive Great Horned Owl
Photographer: Nelma Oman
Location: West Yellowstone, Mt.
Tegan, a captive Great Horned Owl, was blown from his nest at 2 weeks old and rescued in Nebraska. An attempt was made to put him in a nest but did not succeed. He is imprinted now and unable to be released into the wild. He now resides at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone. This photo did win a 1st place in the GWDC amateur bird category for fall of 2013. I was lucky enough for him to turn his head and wink. The photo was taken through a chain link fence.
