Birds of play: Ashley Carsh of the West Valley Outdoor Learning Center presents Hanovi, a 10-year-old great horned owl, to a gathering at the Argonne Library in Millwood on July 16. The children, including Josh Boyle, 8, Rowdy Van Hees, 5, and Rex Van Hees, 7, learned the bird’s talons can exert 500 pounds of pressure, and the wings are nearly silent when flapping. The bird of prey has a damaged wing and has limited flying ability. The event was part of the Spokane County Library’s School Age Programs. (Dan Pelle)
