@FieldConservation. Yes, I was very lucky. An unforgettable experience!
Adorable! What a rare sighting.
That's interesting Alice, thank you.
Emma, My parents got me up from bed one night when I was probably 5 years old to show me and my sister a Great Horned Owl sitting in a pine tree outside our window. If you ever see a group of crows or jays mobbing a tree in the day time, likely it is because an Owl is roosting there. Go for a walk just after sunset and you are more likely to spot them. Or call them in immitating their call.
I always hear a screech and a barn owl,perhaps a horned owl. But have never been lucky enough to see one ,except in the Lindsay museum of wildlife . They have a beautiful collection of owls. The barred owl in the museum turns around when someone is looking at her.
A family of owls actually came to me; flew onto a branch above me; hard to take photos as I was not prepared! Watching them was amazing! This little one was curious about me!
Way to sneak up on the owl. Birds are such a challenge!
Nice Owl !
Thank u rainglow!
