Screech Owl in tree on the west leg of the boardwalk through the Cyprus Swamp. It appears to have a problem with it's left eye as does the Great Horned Owl.

Someone suggested that some of these birds may have been placed here to recover after the have been released from a local shelter for injured wild life. It's a nice story but maybe that's all it is.

02/27/06 Update - I got more shots of this owl and some have the left eye open most of the way and it looks fine.
