    Such wonderful birds! I hear them in the evenings but I’ve only seen one here once in very poor light. I guess we need to build an owl house.

      Thank you, Julie. This was taken at a rehab center, where sadly his injuries do not allow release back to the wild. But life is worry-free and he is well cared for.

  35. Great photo Eliza. Im longing to see one close up around here. I here them every evenning and sometimes early morning but apart from one flying across nearby, I havent yet seen one close enough to take a photo. Hopefully it may happen one day.
