Congratulations Karen. Always feels good to get a shot at a new bird.

+1. Sadly no more owls where I shoot.

Nice find. I'm sure you'll get more opportunities to take more photos of him.

It can be a bit disconcerting when they just sit and stare at you. I always wonder just what they must be thinking.

I was beginning to think there weren't any here..as I have looked for so long. Sorry you haven't any there, but your hawk shots make up for it!

At least he was sitting still and not flying madly away like the hawks do when I slow down or park the car. Quite a nice change!! I think we have rain coming in for a few days, but I'm anxious to get back to that area and walk around. Do you find them up in trees sleeping during the day??

It will most likely stick around that area for a while as long as food is to be had.

What a gorgeous plumage that owl has!

Congratulations on the sighting and on the images!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

That's what I thought when I saw the pics on my screen. What long fluffy feathers! Thank you for the nice compliment!

That's how I get all my shots...no telling how many miles i have put on my car just driving along country roads! LOLOL. I'm retired so I do this almost daily if the weather is nice. One gets tired of the little finches, cardinals and black capped chikadees at the feeders. Although they are entertaining! I love the raptors!

Nice shots of this guy. We have them around here, but they are hard to find. Silent flyers though.

Thanks, Mitch. I was disappointed in the shots but sure got a rush seeing him on that line! ( If I saw Elvis stepping out of a UFO, I would miss the shot due to excitement). Sad but true...:lol:.
