Can you see the Barred Owl in the upper image?
At first we thought that it was not on it's favorite perch and then when I backed up and looked through one of the tree holes, there it was ;)
This week I had the extreme pleasure of meeting up with 2 birding ladies that know their stuff...I learned so much.
I was on the hunt to view and photograph my favorite Owl around these parts, the Barred Owl.
Of course I still dream one day of viewing and photographing a Great Gray Owl, but not for now.
When my husby and I had our Federal permit to rehab and release Raptors, we took care of a single Barred Owl during that time, and I fell in love with that species...what beauties they are.
That was back in the late 1970's, early 80's and would you believe in all of my nature walks, I have never gotten to see one since...until this past Friday.
Yikes, I was so thrilled!!!
I will not do a whole lot of writing this evening, but allow you to view these images as I saw the scenes on my walk.
I hope that each of you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed sharing them.
Hoping that everyone who comes to view will have a wonderful week.

Wild Bird Wednesday(http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com.au/)
Next week... a chance meeting with a fellow blogger, Canada Geese, assorted migrating ducks and still hoping a few shares of Sandhill Cranes.
Maybe if I write it and speak those words out loud;) , it will happen, at least I can hope~
Hmm, I thought that I saw a Zebra, but no matter which way I turned it, it was still a Horse...just a matter of how you look at things, I guess.
Have a happy~
