Nice one John, Hoping to find them on my patch. I've got barn and tawny, little owl would make a nice set.
Thanks Mike!We are lucky in that we have all 4 owls in the Peterborough area (5 if you include the SEO`s in the winter). I have yet to get a decent photo of the Long-eared Owls though.J
That is a lovely bird to be able to count on! Great shots, John!
Thanks Tammy, as I said, it may be small, but it is perfectly formed!J
Lovely shots John.Such a little beauty too.
Thanks Keith,It's nice that it can be relied upon as an addition to your list!J
Great stuff John. I only get to see owls after dark.
Thanks John! This is one owl that is out and about in the daylight. I have seen the Barn and Short-eared in daylight, but Tawny and Long-eared tend to like it a bit darker.J
I'm really envious of these John having spent time at the weekend looking for them in a place where they had been reported locally....with no luck :-( I'm particularly envious that you can pretty well be guaranteed to see them at your site! Lovely photos!!
Don't be too envious Jan, it's the only owl I can guarantee the roost site of. I am sure that in time you will find your own and then you will see them every year too.J
I know that there are owls near here, I hear them by night and however hard I look, peer up into the trees by day I have ever, ever seen one. We don't have them here. Your photo is a triumph, beautiful subject and great composition.
Thanks Cuby Poet,I am always hearing the Tawny Owl in some trees behind our house, but I am yet to see it!J
That's the definitive version of a 'hard stare'!When an owl looks at you stay looked-at! And, if you're a mouse, you get eaten as well.... Click here for Bazza’s Blog ‘To Discover Ice’
Most definitely Bazza! In the case of this owl, if your a frog, worm or small bird too!J
The owl certainly knows you are there!
It does indeed Camera Girl! His eyes never left me whilst I was there!J
She's a beauty!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Great photos of a beautiful Owl. You are very lucky to know where to see it so regularly.
Thanks Mick!Yes, very lucky, hopefully long may it continue!J
I love the owls, cute shots!

Lovely photos of the owl!A perfect WBW post!
Thanks Hans! Glad you liked them.J
Hi John...That bites..I have been wanting to see an Owl of any kind forever and you just pop out a photo of one like it was nothing lol ; )!!Great shot's ..he must be a healthy,wealthy,and wise old Owl living in the same place all this time !Grace
Hi Grace,It definitely isn't nothing, it has taken me a while to get a couple of photos of which I am proud. It helps that there is a breeding box in the same tree which they use.J
And a couple of shots perfectly taken John.
Thanks Roy, too kind!J
aren't you lucky to have a resident owl!!
Very lucky! :)J
Nice bird - I said this elsewhere, but I think this slightly hidden view suits owls - gives them a bit of mystery.Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.Stewart M - Melbourne
Thanks Stewart,An air of mystery around a mysterious bird, perhaps?J
Super images. How convenient to have any bird be so considerate as to be there when you want a look!I'm afraid our American birds are quite rude and disappear as soon as they spot you!
Hi Wally,Many thanks, both for your visit and kind comment. Yes, it is pretty convenient that the bird is always there, one day it won't be and that will be weird!J
Oh John, he is little but oh so grand...delightful images of this one!
Thanks Mary,A lovely little owl and not always easy to see!J
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my humble blog.
