    We hear them in the woods behind our house and my husband has conversations with them. We've never seen one. Glad you got a good pic.

    I have a strange owl story. About 15 yrs. ago, in CO, my middle daughter had her horse pastured about half a mile from our house. In the summer, early evening, she would walk to where the horse was, check to see he was OK, and walk back home. She spotted an owl over where the horse was and started "talking" to it and it started following her back to our house every evening. I couldn't believe it, so went out one night to check her story out and sure enough, there it was, perched in a tree by the house while we said a who-who good night to him. This went on all fall.

    That is really cool. When we moved her 4 years ago we had an owl living in the barn, but with horses and goats moving in, he took up residence elseware by the second year. Probably another uninhabited barn down the road.

    This is very cool. I think it is very difficult to see owls. I appreciate your sharing these photos. They are great.

    Can't remember where but I have seen an owl quilt pattern some place. Your picture reminded me of it.

    Since you love owls, I just have to share a picture with you. We were at an RV Ranch (horses) in Colorado that had a lot of trees. This little guy appeared on our patio one afternoon. We called local group and they came and got him.

    Owls are way cool and I love your pictures. A great horned owl got my cat though and I am still sad 11 years later. I do enjoy seeing the owls because it is a rare opportunity! Thank you.

    Owls are so beautiful. I rarely see them here. I do see lots of hawks, and down by the Boise River, you can see Bald Eagles. But owls are special!

    I posted a picture of a visiting owl last week. I think with all the deep snow cover they are not able to find their usual diet of mice and other vermin. They are hungry and showing up in odd places and at unusual times of day trying to survive.

    Aww, parrothead, what an adorable litte fuzzball.
    We have a great horned owl in our woods too, as DH has seen it, but I never have. I'd sure love to, tho.
