friendly fluff

This is the unnamed Great Grey Owl (Strix nebulosa) at the Burren Birds of Prey Center. Until last winter, he was part of a breeding pair, but unfortunately, his mate died during the harsh winter. The poor fellow is by himself now, but as far as I know, a new companion for him will soon be arriving!
