My First Owl

While hubby and I were going out the other night, we spotted this Barred owl. He was sitting on a power line above the road, it was so exciting!  We rarely see an owl in the city.  He was pretty big and just gorgeous!
I started taking pics through the open sunroof.  They didn't come out great because it was night time, but good enough to share. :) 

Just want to say that I've had a lot of extra stuff going on in life and I miss seeing everyone daily, but I'm doing my best to get back here. :)

Great photos of the Owl, Marie. So glad you saw one. I've never seen one around here--but I know that we DO have them... I can feel your excitement JUST getting to see one.

Have a great Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

How neat!! I've only seen one owl in the wild in my entire life. They're amazing aren't they?

Great shots of the owl Marie and congrats on seeing one of these fellows. I have rarely seen them. The last one was a Great Horned owl and he was sitting on a power pole in our back yard. Unfortunately it was so dark the photos didn't turn out.

We miss you too, don't work too hard.
