Grey Screech Owl by Ginger-PolitiCat Grey Screech Owl by Ginger-PolitiCat
I decided to base this project on an actual owl that I know.

There is an Eastern Grey Screech Owl currently housed at the North Chagrin Reservation Nature Centre in NE Ohio.

The poor thing will never be released back into the wild due to her losing an eye.

She has no name but I think she is absolutely adorable despite her disability....I make this in honour of her :heart:

Part of her is crocheted using variegated yarn which I find challenging to use. I also had to paint the eye myself as I only had brown ones and wanted it to match her actual appearance.

This is my submission for the Amigurumi-Challenge [link] Contest

Based on this pattern [link]
