Barred Owl!

“Barred Owl” — oil on canvas 16 x 20″ by Margie Guyot

I found this poor barred owl dead along the road today. It probably flew into a passing car. I’m going to donate him to the Raven Hill Discovery Center (over in East Jordan). Hopefully they’ll have him taxidermied for display. In the mean time I had to paint him. No use wasting a good roadkill!

And I had to let the cats inspect this wonderous bird. Here’s Picasso:

And here’s Bernie Sanders. Mr. Wonderful missed out. He was quite busy, sleeping on my bed.

Owl probably tastes just like chicken, but it’s a $5000 fine if the DNR catches you with one. So off to Raven Hill Discovery Center I go!
