Barn Owl (Tyto alba)
Location: near Tucson, Arizona, USA
Here is another shot of the Barn Owl (Tyto alba) that was in the previous photo. In the earlier photo, the owl was perched. This time it is flying -- or, more correctly, gliding.
This owl was part of the raptor free flight display at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, located outside Tucson, Arizona. The raptor free flight display gives visitors an opportunity to observe birds of prey in their natural habitat.
