Happy 'Owloween' .

The Great Horned Owl at Valley View
Kathy Woods joined us on a spectacular autumn day with an owl from her Phoenix Wildlife Center.
The Great Horned Owl was a hit with many of the people, especially the kids, who had stopped by to pick out pumpkins.

Kathy was joined by intern Melissa and Melissa's friend Brian. The three of them engaged the children and adults on various owl topics including what owls ate, (mice, skunks and other small mammals), how large a wingspan owls have (really large), and all sorts of other owl tidbits.
To keep up with all the happenings at Phoenix Wildlife Center, join them on facebook or check out their website for some fabulous photos of the animals at the center. Phoenix Wildlife Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and return to the wild of native wildlife. Kathy and her group are also dedicated to the education of the public on wildlife issues. Thanks again to Kathy for making the day a special learning experience for so many animal lovers at Valley View Farms.
