The other day, I was rushing off in the middle of the day to go with Julia and her class on their nature field trip. Something flew in front of me. I thought it was a wild turkey. I backed up the car and in a tree perched rather low, I saw this owl.
Once again, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Baby raccoons and now an owl all in two days. I had my camera and snapped. He flew into the woods deeper and I zoomed and snapped again. We sat there staring at each other and then I remembered the field trip. Late again.
After the long winter, it’s amazing how much wildlife we are seeing. Everyone is out and about, including the humans.
Does anyone know what kind of owl he is? I think he may be a spotted owl according to this owl website. I hope I see him/her again. What luck.
