Wild Wednesday, Snowy Owl

In February 2008, Zach and I attended the Howell Nature Center's "Birds of Prey" Photography Workshop. We were priviledged to encounter this beautiful Snowy Owl among many other birds that are rarely seen in the wild. I will be featuring each bird in Wild Wednesday posts to come. The Howell Nature Center is an amazing wildlife rehabilitation center and an amazing learning experience. They have dozens of Michigan animals in captivity where the public can veiw upclose and observe their behavior in a somewhat natural setting. All of the animals in the facility have encountered some sort of tradjedy in their life which makes them unable to be released into the wild. Not onlly is the HNC rehabilitating, but they are using this unfortunate opportunity to teach awareness, with the hope that animals in the future won't have to encounter the same fate. To learn more about the Howell Nature Center or to donate to their facility visit their website at Every year I donate a gift certificate for a Personalized Pet Portrait done in pastel to the Wild and Wonderful Night Auction. I've met some wonderful people who share my love for nature. The photographs in Iron Oaks Farm blog are all taken by Jennifer or Zach Sartell (unless otherwise indicated) and are available for purchase.
