we have owls in our area that live in the woods across the street from our house.

We keep a close eye on our little Camilla; at 6 pounds she would be a tasty treat; when we first moved to this area I did not realize how many birds of prey we would see but we have dozens on a daily basis, mostly turkey vulchers, falcons and hawks; but also eagles, osprey, and the big owls across the street.

We had a young Great Horned Owl in our tree for the entire summer two years ago. What a treat!

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

oh, Anna! They are so hard to see in the wild but when you do....oh...you just stop and stare at each other for the longest time! Such and awesome sight!
We have Barred and Great Horned Owls in our woods. I've yet to see the Great Horned since they are mainly night-time birds. But we frequently see the Barred Owls since they hunt during the day. We love to hear them calling to each other through the woods. Before my 14yo son's voice changed, he could imitate them well enough to get them to answer him back.

Blessings,
Heidi

I've never seen any kind of owl in the wild, though I've heard them.

I wish they would come my way. They are beautiful birds!

Has everyone seen all the news about the Snowy Owls moving south from the Arctic this fall and summer? Has anyone spotted one yet? Several have been seen in Indiana, but I've not seen one yet since we live in the woods and the snowy owl needs the plains for hunting.

Blessings,
Heidi
