The late short eared

Here are the pictures from the short eared owl. I did not get good shots of them. But that is ok because i had many oppurtunities earlier in the winter. I am so happy about these Owls because i waited two years to get them at this park which is 5 minutes from my house. I am also the only lucky guy that sighted them here this year. It was really windy and they jetted around being chased by crows. The wind pushed the bird in the pictures backwards with his butt facing me . So my best picture is his butt.... :( well I went crazy with joy when i saw them so here are some pictures.

  1. I started to write this comment and it disappeared?? If you get two...you'll know what happened. Anyway...you are one lucky fella to see this gorgeous bird! I absolutely LOVE the expression on his face in the first shot! That is priceless! If I had those owls that close to me...I'd be there all day - every day! So awesome!

  7. Yes, your header is fabulous. A nice shot. I have no owls here in my backyard but we have had screech owls in past years. A lovely pair.

    I try to do some things that are inspirational in some way. Not always successful. Gobsmacks
