Yesterday we were sitting in the camper when Chris shouted "Look in that tree! There is an owl!!"
He ran to get my "good" camera.
I then went outside armed with my camera.
As I got closer to him the owl flew across the road.
He was pretty far up in the tree but I zoomed in as far as my camera would let me and
managed to snap a few pretty good shots!
I looked it up and there are 4 species of owl here in NC.
We have now seen 2 of the 4.
First the two Great Horned Owls and now a Barred Owl.
I think it is called Barred because of the barring on the feathers.
You can see the barring if you click on this photo and make it larger.
I hope you are enjoying these photos.
I am so thrilled to be able to see owls in real life!
