A Halloween Goblin

When you visit the World Bird Sanctuary, be sure to look for Goblin, our frighteningly adorable barn owl!

Here you see Goblin doing his best Dracula impression!

Are you scared yet?

Boo!

As a volunteer photographer for the World Bird Sanctuary I am fortunate to be able to get very close to the birds. However, visitors can also get this close--especially at our special events.

The owl in these photos, Goblin, was hand raised by the staff so that he would be very comfortable with people. He will meet thousands of guests in his lifetime--especially schoolchildren, so he needs to be calm and comfortable in their presence.
