Eye Spy!


I frequently hear this beauty call at night, “Who Will Cook For You?” But it’s a rare thing to catch a view – particularly in the middle of the afternoon. On Sunday, as we all enjoyed some unseasonably warm weather, look who perched in one of our apple trees.  He (or she? and how can you tell?) was so mellow and sleepy, just dozing in the sun I had a job to convince him to open his eyes for the photo.  He is obviously used to seeing me.

      Lucky, indeed! A friend of mine says it is a kind of a gift to see an owl. 😌 Thanks!

    What a treat. I rarely see more than a flash of wings with owls. This one looks like he is posing.

    A barred owl! You can’t tell the difference between a male and female by comparing plumage. It’s only be comparing size (females are larger) and by observing their behaviour when mating and nesting. What a great photo! I’ve always wanted to get a photo of an owl.

      Hi Liz! Thanks! It was a real thrill to see this guy/gal! Thanks for the info….. I guess I’ll never know if it was a boy or a girl (not that it matters), unless I see two together – and what are the chances of that?
