Screech Owl Carving
Red Phased Screech Owl (Miniature) Carved out of Tupelo Wood with glass eyes, mounted on driftwood and painted with acrylics.
"One of the smallest species of owls in North America. Also been called the Common Screech Owl. So common that I have had several of them visit me in my back yard at the same time. This Owl is wrapping its talons around the driftwood. The Wings are not quite even, a slight pose of action. I like to think it just landed and about to start preening himself. I love how the Cherry Wood Base and the Owl complement each other on this piece."
Great Horned Owl Carving
Great Horned Owl (Miniature) Carved out of Tupelo Wood with glass eyes, mounted on driftwood with a Cherry Wood base and painted with acrylics.
"Great Horned Owls habitats from dense forests to city parks. They have been known to inhabit the same area as the red tailed hawk. This is a really neat piece, I love the piece of driftwood. I have the driftwood carved into the Cherry Wood Bass and then I have the Owl wrapping its talons around the driftwood at the top. He leaning forward just a bit, like he's ready to attack. These birds have 500 pounds per square inch of crushing power in their talons. Prey are usually killed instantly when grasped by its large talons."

Long-eared Owl Carving
Long-eared Owl (Miniature) Carved out of Tupelo Wood with glass eyes, mounted on driftwood and painted with acrylics.
"Long Eared Owls are buoyant fliers, appearing to glide noiselessly even when their wings are flapping. They are very maneuverable and can fly through fairly dense brush. They fly moth like, often hovering and fluttering while looking for prey. When roosting, a Long eared Owl will stretch its body to make itself appear like a tree branch. This Owl species is perhaps most easily seen perched in a tree in its daytime roost."
