My 1st Screech Owl...

Postby Quentin on Fri Mar 08, 2013 5:43 pm

I was @ LaSalle Park this morning. Quite by accident I came across this little one... I wouldn't have even noticed had it not been for the photographer standing patiently @ the tree (waiting for an open eye shot). He seems quite contented, basking in the morning sun; (I gather from a post last month he/she has been here for some time). According to a few of the locals there are a pair.. another up further on the hill in the forest. Anyway.. I am very excited.. my 1st... 'and' I happened to have my camera this time.

Nice shot and congratulations on your first Screech Owl. Firsts are always so exciting. Nice lighting on the owl as well.

Thank you for the compliments. LaSalle is one of my favorites. I shall keep watch for the owlets; that would be very exciting to witness.
