A very special guest

I found him last weekend. I thought it was an injured Owl and wanted to help him, yes he rode the Husky TE 410 home with me, inside that camo jacket, and the owl was kind of kranky. After speaking to a bird specialist, I found out it was a fledgling and was promptly returned to the area he was found.
We will not forget the day Tollster brought the Owl into the living room. He was so, so, beautiful. My wife was kind of freaking out. Futunately, mom wasn't waiting for us when we returned him...Notice the talons and my PPE....

Yikes. And I'll be the owl is telling this story on its own forum.

I watched some US Fish and Wildlife folks tag a bald eagle once. Lots of blood, but none of it was from the eagle.
