Nature in NC

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!

I love owls. None here in Santa Cruz, CA, that I know of, but we did have one (or more?) in the mountains outside of town. Thanks for the pics, and the names of the owls you have seen.
