Up Close & Personal With an Owl

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, Williams


If you’re a resident of Arizona and you like wildlife parks, I highly recommend a trip out to Williams for a drive through Bearizona. At Bearizona, you can drive through and see bison, black bears, big horn sheep, and wolves right outside your car window. Further into the park, you can see other woodland creatures such as raccoons, bobcats, and smaller bears. They also have a show for the high country raptors including this beautiful owl that flew inches above my head.

I LOVE that place! Although they did raise their prices quite a bit, it’s still very worth the trip. Little known fact: I’m afraid of bears 😐 Still cool to see them up close and personal, especially the little ones!

That’s a beautiful bird. Shame on me, I have never heard about that place, since I have lived in AZ for more than 15 years.

Will visit the place soon …

Love the detail of the feather.

In my humble opinion Kristi, the Great Horned Owl is the most magnificent bird I have ever seen to date. I love all owls but the Great Horned is just so majestic, and to see one up close, a marvelous experience!
