An owl lands after flying above a crowd assembled for a High Country Raptors free-flight show Sunday during Bearizona's one-year anniversary celebration.

The park celebrated its first birthday on Sunday and local residents turned out in large numbers to eat cake, walk the grounds and take in the debut of a free-flight raptor show.
