Linda, you've topped yourself with this one! Love the white sky in contrast to it's surroundings! Is this one of the owls we know? Into faves! #11147305

Linda A. Braddock September 29, 2014

Joannie, Thankyou so much! Yes, this is, I believe one of the parent owls. About a month ago, my husband found a dead owl beside the road, about a mile from the house, we are not sure if it was the baby owl or not, once they begin to get their adult feathers, it is hard to tell one from the other, so we go by
personality most of the time. We only have two coming to the yard now, think it is the pair. #11147562

Ann, Thankyou! You are so right, I do feel lucky to have these Owls come to my backyard. I am an animal lover, and I hate to see any animal struggle to survive. #11152200
