Eagle Owl video

Ran out of time this week to post some more pics. Enjoy this video of a captive Eurasian Eagle Owl filmed as it flew to a perch, sent by friends Nancy and Chuck. Watch how the owl flares its feathers (wings and tail) to create drag as it slows down to land. Note also how the feet come up exactly between its ears; this is how the bird would approach prey.
