Boreal Owl and Peony

This piece was created as a thank-you gift for Dr. David Russell, who founded and runs the Avian Research and Education Institute at Hueston Woods State Park in Oxford, Ohio. Dr. Russell and his wife, Dr. Jill Russell, were kind enough to allow me to attend bird banding classes, observe operations at the banding station, and accompany them on their Ornithology class field trip to Magee Marsh. Over the summers, the Russells study Boreal Owls (Aegolius funereus) and farm peonies in Alaska. What a life!
