Sometimes I take pics and then get sidetracked and forget to come back and share them. Such was the case with the images of this cool, little dude that I took way back at the end of February.
It had its nest in the hollowed out part of this tree and wasn’t shy about coming out and taking in the warmth of the sun. It was a very fun experience to photograph this rarely seen bird.
Screech Owls are common east of the Rockies and can be found in just about any place there is a tree. They are well camouflaged and like most owls, active at night.
