The post headline – if you know, you know! Or you might say, I’m showing my age!
If this were smell-o-vision you’d know this great horned owl from Polk County, Iowa, had been up close with a skunk. Owl has a puncture wound to the left eye and a bruised wing. Owl is healing and eating nicely.
This horned owl is also showing us the “scary” owl pose of leaning forward and puffing out feathers to make itself look even larger than it is.
