I love birds of prey. That is one of the most beautiful owls I have seen. Why can't we protect animal habitats?

Noted & posted. Funny, an old lady friend told me I looked just like a great horned owl. I certainly don't look anything like that...LOL The owl, the most efficient hunter in the forest.

Another reason to stop logging big old trees Planting new ones is not always the answer and they take years to grow no good fo some species like this owl

I would give a bundle to see this big boy in person! But, like so many, he's threatened by man! We just don't get the big picture, do we??

We have to do all we can to halt deforestations!!! :( Animals live in forests and these trees are homes to 1000's of animals! :(
