Comments for Boris

Boris: 10/3/04

After breakfast Sean and I went to the Sulphur Creek Nature Center for our weekly trek to see the owls. Today we learned that one of the two Great Horned Owls is named Boris but I don't know if that's the old one or the young one.

The young one that we have nick named "Heech Heech" took particular interest in Sean. I think he did because Sean was playing in the leaves as he was talking to the owl. The leaf noise must have sounded like a mouse walking through the debris. The young owl flew down to the ground to watch Sean sort through the leaves, completely fascinated.

Heech Heech though lighter than Caligula by about 5 pounds, is larger than she is. He also has the largest set of claws on any bird his size I've ever seen. The literature on the cage says that Great Horned owls have claws as large as a bears. While that might be a bit of a stretch, they are certainly a close second!
