Maggie - Great-horned Owl
16 inches high x 16 inches wide

“Maggie the Great Horned Owl is one of Liberty Wildlife’s education ambassadors. She came to our facility in 2003 as a baby following a nest attack by a local hawk. She had multiple open wounds in her skull that required constant cleaning until her skull grew back. She became a beautiful bird full of personality and is very popular with visitors and school children.

“Maggie also has a second job as a foster parent. In the spring, Liberty receives dozens of nestling owls, many blown out of nests by seasonal winds and storms. Maggie will foster up to six babies each spring, feeding them and protecting them from her keepers who still have to clean and provide food each day.

“I don't often paint captive animals, but for this special bird I made an exception.”
