"HOW NOW BROWN OWL?"

Great Horned Owl (Adult) - 5 Photos

 

"It was a dark & stormy day"! :) Well actually it was just dark and sleeting. 

 

Came across this Great Horned Owl, snuggled up to a tree trunk and trying to catch some owl "z's".

 

And yes, those feathers which give this owl its name are at complete attention. First it was mobbed by a group of chickadees. Then came a raven which landed on a nearby branch and called in reinforcements. Eventually that pair left the area too. And finally a barking dog came by which caught the owl's attention, probably because it was already on edge.

 

Finally, peace, once again, was restored and as you can see from Photo #4 and Photo #5, shut-eye was not far away.

Lovely photos! Nice to see owl photos again. Suddenly it became a rare treat for me :(
I've met Ron yesterday and he showed me where he saw Sikome Lake owl the day before. No sign of owl when we were there.
I'm sometimes glad when dog comes along and catches the owl's attention :) Great photo when owl looks down.
