From its preferred nesting environment—a scrape constructed within a rocky cliff or outcrop—this pharaoh eagle-owl scans the terrain.
Its bright yellow eyes are characteristic of the species.
The birds are generally found in arid habitats of North Africa and the Middle East and are efficient nocturnal predators—even scorpions are on its menu.

Zeus, Blind Owl with Stars in his Eyes.

rescued-blind-owl-zeus-6
One morning, someone in Southern California found an injured owl on their porch. It turned out to be a blind Western Screech Owl with eyes that look like a starry night.
After a visit to the vet, the owl found a new permanent home at the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, California.
He was named “Zeus” after the Greek god of sky and thunder because of his stunning eyes.
Zeus was injured when he was found on that front porch in South California, but the dedicated team of animal lovers at the center helped him on his feet again.
Since he was blind, they couldn’t simply release him back into the wild, so he now lives in a trunk on the filing cabinet next to the Wildlife Learning Center founder Paul Hahn’s desk.
