Nature photography from a woman in the woods

What a Hoot . . .

Take a look at my surprise Sunday visitor . . .

Owls live here in Minnesota, but are not seen often during the day. If a winter has been extremely tough with lots of snow and cold owls from Canada will come down to Minnesota looking for food. A caught a glimpse of this one while it checked out the bird feeder area looking for a meal. Successfully catching a mouse, shrew or maybe even one of the many red squirrels will insure that this owl will stick around for a few days. I am hoping to get a better picture if it does.

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?”

    • It was definitely a treat. That was the only day I saw him … and I have been looking and calling.

  3. Hi Bearyweather, Your photo is great! I like Owls. One is making its nighttime appearance in the huge Sycamore just outside my home in the backyard here in FL. Nightly hoot concertos are happening. Good thing I like birds! : )
    Have a super good day!
