Barred Owl




I love owls. I always have. One thing I like about this time of year here is the Barred Owls become more visible, usually showing up in the same areas around dusk. This year I have been fortunate enough to have one been visiting my yard. I was outside with Finnegan a little while ago and this one soared overhead. I went back in to get the camera, and the owl had landed up on one of the powerlines. Just as I snapped the picture it decided to move on. I was left with a cool shot of this owl with wings in air and talons spread!* Too bad it is from the rear... maybe I'll have to see if I can see it another night.
