Beautifully captured image. Those intense eyes lead me to believe it is on the hunt! Great color and detail.

Hi again Fella, getting back to the owls ids, lol -- believe the one in our area is a Barred Owl, as it has the brown eyes. It has been visiting our front garden area recently, and I posted some pics here of it. It was perched on the wire twice, above our front lawn. We saw it once at night, and the next time earlier. Haven't seen it here since tho'.

Oh, what a beautiful owl - I care not which he be!!! I like how his eyes peak at the top - an inquistive sensitive owl it seems to me. This owl by any name, is a treasure. So glad you were there at right time and right place!!!

well, have finally found my version of the spotted owl (on my gallery) and guess it really IS a spotted owl? : ) as it has the yellow beak etc. We heard on tv how few there are of these, so I was going to contact the Wildlife people to tell them about the one near us. Maybe I should, as DH saw it again in the same small woods a few days ago. It's on page 20 if you want to check.

thanks Austin for the info. Must check my pics of the owl I thought might be spotted. Hubby saw it up in the little wooded area again recently.

WOW!! what a great shot.

Not a spotted either. They have dark eyes, yellow beak and the bars on the chest run side to side not up and down.
My guess would be Short eared owl.

he's gorgeous, Fella. but you know what? have a feelin' he's a Spotted Owl, as we have one like that in a small wooded area near us. I think they are endangered species, here at least.
