|Completed facial disk with right wing completed and left wing prior to the gathering at the top and trimming to make the feathers. This way you can see the shape I used for the wings.|
|Both wings ready to sew onto the body, and face placed in position.|
|Barn owl in his temporary "tree".|
This is a branch and eucalyptus leaves that I made into a mobile a few years ago. Since I have completed my owl in the dark of night it would have been hard to photograph him in a real tree.
Notice the curved beak. (Mossy made a point of encouraging the beak to be curved at the base--used for disassembling caught prey!)
Now you can see the wing at it's best.
|The barn owl doesn't have visible tufts on it's head like some of the other owl varieties.|
It has quite a smooth head shape.
|Ever so cute Barn Owl!|
A great adventure the last few days, and now a new member of my animal family.
Hope you have had a very good EARTH DAY!
Keep greening our Planet Earth.
