Great Horned Owl

.

I received a tip from a local resident that a Great Horned Owl was seen in an old banyan tree in town.

I was at the tree that evening, and looked and looked.

Ah-ha!Β  When I finally spotted the owl, it was not perched in the banyan tree this time, but in a palm tree next to it, hiding in the shadows of the fronds.

It was breezy, so I hoped for a chance to catch the early evening’s sun on the owl’s face inbetween the moving shadows.

  1. What a great catch! The great horned was the very first owl I spotted in the wild. It would perch in some dead trees across the street and my late husband would have a conversation with it. Love the sound of their call.

  2. Great Horned Owls have a lot to say. With their high-pitched trills or hearty squawks; and those Great Horned Owl meows, coos and hisses. So have a listen after dark for the Great Horned Owls in your neighborhood.
