Great Horned Owl
Sometimes you get lucky when you are hiking and see some amazing flora and fauna. My wife took her sister’s dog Bailey for a walk recently on the Clyburn Valley Hiking trail, Cape Breton Highlands National Park and came across a Great Horned Owl. Generally you hear an owl before seeing one. She was amaze at how close the owl let her come and take a picture. Photo taken by Canon A720 camera with 6 optical zoom.
The Clyburn Valley Hiking trail was one of the 24 guided hikes in the 2008 Hike the Highlands Festival.
Below is a short video (5 min.) on the Great Horned Owl.
