Tiny Needle Felted Barn Owl

I started felting animals when I was first learning to needle felt about 5 years ago.  But I never made an owl.

I had also never seen an owl in "real life."  I had been a birder for over 10 years and not once seen an owl.   I always heard owls in the night calling to each other while I was laying in my tent while camping.
But last month, an owl just "fell" out of a tree right in front of me at the park.  And then I realized I was surrounded by three barred owls...lucky me!  They are very cool animals to observe.  They remind me of cats with wings.

Well, I decided to try and needle felt a barn owl.

I think he is kinda cute. I gave this one to a friend, but I think I will make several more this week.
