The Secret Life of Owls

The Secret Life of Owls

We all recognize the haunting nighttime hoots of the Great Horned Owl. This powerful predator lives all over the Americas. Yet it's rare to catch a glimpse. The Secret Life of Owls gives us intimate look at this amazing bird of prey and introduces us to some passionate owl experts along the way. We'll meet Robbie, a Great Horned Owl under the care of wildlife cinematographer Neil Rettig and his wife Laura Johnson, a veterinarian who specializes in birds of prey. As the couple train Robbie to fly and hunt, they'll film him using state-of-the-art ultra high definition high-speed cameras, capturing the life of a Great Horned Owl in breathtaking detail. We're on the front lines with a raptor rehab team as they fight to save a pair of orphaned owlets. To give the orphans a shot at returning to the wild, they enlist the help of a feathered foster mom - a rescue owl named Casper. A rare opportunity to observe an owl family in the wild is possible with footage shot using a special infrared filter for night shooting. We'll check in with this owl family in Alberta over several seasons, following a trio of owlets as they grow from helpless 2 week olds to young adults about to strike out on their own. Through The Secret Life Of Owls, we will witness the power and wonder of what it takes to be one of nature's most fierce and formidable hunters.

This film gave me everything I love in movie, a powerful story and more than enough edge-of-your-seat action sequences.

Well-crafted, well-written, and well-acted film. Catharine Parke added depth to its characters and an acerbic quality to its witty dialog.

I have watched this movie 3 times, and each time have liked it more than I did the first time, and even then I still enjoyed it a lot!
