Nature certainly knows how to camouflage its own. These magnificent great horned owls are often found in our area, yet their unique colors and feather patterns enable them to blend in so well into these old aspen trees that they are often hard to find. It is their plumicorns, or feather tufts found on their head that gives these owls a very distinct difference from their counterparts. Although I’ve seen numerous owls in my travels, they never cease to amaze me in their ability to uniquely camouflage into their surroundings.
