Owl Sighting

I have finally seen the owl that I knew was living in my neighborhood. I have heard him many times, but he has remained elusive, until now!
As I was passing by a window, something caught my eye out in the trees, and there he was!
It is hard to see in these pictures, I zoomed and cropped as much as possible. He was very large, and light gray. And beautiful.
I believe this is him - the Great Gray Owl.

  7. I am feeling owl envy over here. I've seen lots of spectacular birds - - - eagles, loons, hawks, hummingbirds, rose breasted grosbeaks, etc - - - BUT NEVER AN OWL.

    I'm so glad you got to see this one, and I'm a tad jealous.

  10. popped over from White Wednesday. What a gorgeous bird. We have owls frequent our yard and sometimes when they start talking back and forth it can get crazy!!! Never spotted one of these guys those. So pretty. We have a pair of hawks nesting way up in our yard for the 2nd year. Fun! thanks so much for sharing these great pics with us.
