A Sunday Visitor Under the Oaks Written by Pix Under the Palm Fronds I think we will keep him. I know he is scouting out mice by the workshop. My snap does not do him justice. Such a magnificent bird!

LikeLike Reply CH and I are in awe. He/She is huge! LikeLike Reply Oh I just love owls…..their faces are fabulous and so expressive aren’t they – especially those EYES! I can hear them at night in our woods….once in a while I see them sitting and watching for voles or chipmunks. Nice visitor – can’t say that I blame you for wanting to keep him (or her). Pam LikeLike Reply We know we have a family but we have not seen them that close to the house. I love hearing them. I just don’t want them snacking on our baby birds we have all over the yard 😯 He can have the mice and the voles and those ding dang MOLES!!!! LikeLike Reply It is a great shot Pix. What time of day did you take this? LikeLike Reply Hi Christina! It was about 10am today. Slightly strange to see them then. LikeLike Reply It is and that is why I wondered. Hopefully The Wise One is feeling okay. LikeLike Reply He was puffed out and eyes at half mast. But he has sat in the trees behind and searched out mice. He seemed to swivel that beautiful head quick enough to check on the back pasture activity. CH said his lift-off was strong.. 🙂 You know we will be watching him. We have a Wild Bird Sanctuary to contact if we see he is in real trouble. I wonder if he has a young family right now? LikeLike Reply He may have family. With you and CH on watch, he is in good hands. LikeLike Reply So beautiful. LikeLike Reply Hey Mama! They are something to look at. Beautiful is right and so filled with confidence! LikeLike Reply Looks like he was posing for you! Great background! 🙂 LikeLike Reply He was looking right at me! LikeLike Reply OMG, OMG!!! I would want to keep him too! What a gift. I feel like owls are so elusive. Yay! Margie LikeLike Reply Thanks Margie! I was doing OMG, OMG too and almost knocked CH down trying to get to my camera.

Yeah, he was a bit intimidating.. 🙂 LikeLike Reply That’s a beautiful photo – I, too, was wondering about seeing him in the daytime. I’m sure you’ll keep an eye out for him (hope he leaves your baby birds alone). I’ve found broken robins’ eggs twice in the past week or so…. LikeLike Reply We have had a Jay kill a nest of baby Robins. Sad. I was shocked. Came back three times even though we tried to watch. On a lighter note we have 5 baby Bluebirds thriving.. 🙂 And a house full of baby chickadeedees! LikeLike Reply Pix you keep the nicest company!

LikeLike Reply I hear them all the time when walking through Brompton Cemetery in London, but I just can’t spot them. LikeLike Reply We have heard owls since I posted this but we haven’t seen any. LikeLike Reply Now this did my ol’ heart a lot of good! I miss “our” screech owls – haven’t heard any yet this summer 😦 This picture is wonderful-magical-perfect, and you are very blessed! I’ve been away much too long… LikeLike Reply Good Morning Tammy! You must have a post up.. 🙂 Ima have to go check! I haven’t been blogging much either. I am addicted to Foster Dad John’s Live Stream of foster kittens and the Book of Face has sucked me in. I saw one of the owls grab something Wednesday afternoon. I wonder if they are feeding babies. I am always so shocked to see them in the daylight hours. LikeLike Reply Wow! Love that owl picture! I hope you can see him/her again soon! They are very elusive indeed. I think it’s very difficult to take picture of birds, because they don’t still… Thanks for let me know about that post! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Hey Sonia! I hear them mostly in the morning but have not seen them since this post. I would love to see them again. LikeLike Reply Just say "hey"!
