Here are some critter variations of late.
Also wish to note that the Barred Owl as my model for conservation may not have been the best
choice. A very similar owl, the Spotted Owl, is the one more threatened and interestingly it is threatened by the Barred Owl, logging and other damages to habitat. I am posting a new image in hopes of improving the owl pattern. Note the white fluff on the face forming an X. This is the most defining difference besides bird size and larger but still dark owl eyes.
Since we use creative felts, it is hard to make a lot of difference in the feather patterns.
