New Great Horned Owl

My newest creation.  .  . guess I will have to work on her owlets. This has been a fun project. She is a Great Horned owl. Her tufts or feathers are where the ears are located. They assist in camouflaging the owl or in the open field silently being able to communicate with each other or to let their families know where they are.  They can be raised up or down depending on these circumstances. When in a tree the color of their ears and their concealment posture blends them in with the tree bark making them almost impossible to identify.  Blessings, Janet
