It has been a while since I have seen the owls at this particular spot in suburbia but I figured it would happen any day now. I assume this is the male and that the female is in the nest behind him.
This is not an easy spot to photograph so I rarely do as the nest is 40+ feet up in a very busy tree with few clear spots to get pictures. This morning as I was wrapping up my photo drive I happened to spot his silhouette so of course had to stop.
He wasn’t too concerned about having been seen though as he only managed to barely crack his eyes open to look at me.
