I love owls, they are so beautiful
you should include more info
where did you spot him?
They have the most amazing call: especially when a pair is calling to each other. It sounds like a pack of fighting/howling coyotes. There is a pair on my property, although thankfully they generally only call on a clear new moon night: those are rare in Oregon
Do you know where it comes from originally? The U.S. spotted owl is endangered.
oh and thanks for all the comments. grazi
it was at a kind of bird sanctuary just south of Kobe Japan
Oh he looks so pensive! What a cute little owl :)
Very shy creature. Great mood shot. Thanks for sharing.
