An Owl Threesome Weekend
Friday and Saturday I photographed barred owls, some images recorded with two of our grandkids with much excitement. Today when Kristy and I went for our “Week 2 of 52 Hike” I photographed a saw-whet owl in a cedar tree. Three days with owl images captured each day!
We were separated a little bit as we wandered down paths that were close, but yet divided by brush. Unexpectedly I heard Kristy call out “I found one!” Sure enough, a bit higher in the tree than we usually find them, there was a saw-whet owl perched next to the trunk of the tree. The little owl casually watched us as I photographed the bird from various vantage points until we continued on our hike.
Not far from the saw-whet owl we both studied gray and red feathers hanging from a tree. I suspect a female cardinal may have become a meal for a larger predatory species.
Once hiking again we saw no more owls, but did see a whitetail deer and a wild turkey.
