Barred Owl - My World



Barred Owl - My World





barred owl in the snow


I peeked out the bathroom window - just like I do every morning to get a glimpse of the day.
 
As I closed the curtain, something caught my eye in the tree.
 
Upon a closer look - it was an owl - just sitting there in the cold falling snow.

I could not believe it - daytime, snow, and an owl - those factors just didn't go together.

He stayed for about three hours - taking a nap here and there.

But he was quite aware at all times.

 He looked in at me through the window - I was so lucky to get this photo.

And when the little mole that he had been watching made it's appearance, he didn't miss a beat.

After his meal he left us, and I haven't seen him since.

What a gift he was on that snowy morning!
