Strix occidentalis lucida
Immature bird, still with downy fluff.
5,800 ft in a slightly burned maple grove.
Observed for about 10 minutes at close range before it started to get annoyed.
Very nice...still looking for my first owl.(Recent years, saw a few when I was a kid) Guess they know I'm carrying a camera now...lol
Lovely spotting!Welcome to the Community Sarah!
