Barred Owl on a Winter’s Morn

It’s been two months since I finally photographed a Barred Owl in my yard here on Mere Point. Ever since moving back to Maine over a year ago I had been searching for this owl. I finally saw and photographed one on January 1st just up the road on Rossmore Road. It took until January 21st to finally see one in my own yard and for a few weeks I saw it on a regular basis, but I am glad I got this photo on February 13th because I have not seen one here again since February 14th!  I think the deep snow we had here made it hard on all the owls this winter.

Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
