Banded Burrowing Owl Chick

Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado

A staff biologist shows proper handling of a newly-banded burrowing owl chick. The birds were trapped and banded, measured, weighed, and had blood drawn for West Nile Disease testing. It was discovered that although they were carrying West Nile, the RMA burrowing owls had developed immunity to the disease. Western burrowing owls are a threated species in Colorado.

Banded Burrowing Owl Chick print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
