Great Horned Owl

A Great Horned Owl was found in Central Park today.  I came late in the day so I could see the fly out. By the time I arrived the owl, which had been harassed by Blujays, was now high in a tree and tough to photograph.  But the owl moved now and then, and I got some good looks.  I was able to see the owl preen, do some pre-flight stretches, and then fly out.
