HRH Princess Anne visited the site of the new International Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw, South Carolina in April, 2003, where I had the pleasure of meeting her.
Sheena Forte with a screech owl. Don’t let those big eyes fool you. These owls have a Napoleon complex!

A bit nervous…
An amazing incident ocurred in September. A bald eagle roosted on the roof of my house! I was delighted, honored, that she chose my house to visit–and took it all as a powerful omen. Or, as Brady would say in SKYWARD, the eagle is now my totem. Below is a photo of the eagle on my roof. Barb Bergwerf came by to photograph the eagle when it moved to a nearby telephone pole.
This great horned owl orphan fell from his nest. What most people don’t realize is that it is best to put the uninjured fledgling back into the nest. This downy little fellow could not get back in, so he was put in a makeshift nest nearby so that mama could continue to feed him. Look at the glare in one so young! That’s the right attitude for a bird of prey’s survival.
