Great Horned Owl Takes Shelter

Jarrett Prairie Reserve, Byron Illinois
Wind thunders across the North American prairie. During the night, tornado warnings kept everyone on edge. The next morning the wind still had a strong hand, but it was a fraction of what it had been. The perfect time to go for a walk and experience an Earth Minute.


Can you spot the camouflaged owl in the tree?
I came across a great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) sheltering from the stormy weather.

It had its back to me the whole time.

The North American tall grass prairie is a vanishing habitat. Jarrett Prairie Reserve offers a wonderful opportunity to experience tall grass prairie, even the butterflies of Illinois.
