Sunday Showcase: Long-eared Owl

Posted by Dan Arndt

In a confluence of coincidence and opportunity, I was contacted by one of our former birding course members this past week with a report of a Long-eared Owl that has stopped by for the day. I suspected that I’d not get another chance like this for a while, so I ran home, grabbed my camera, and spent about an hour shooting the bird through their picture window, and through a side window. The next day it had moved on, likely only having stopped for a day of rest on its northern migration. Enjoy!

I think he’s getting a bit annoyed by all the attention…

Ok, that’s enough, now let me get back to sleep…

I wish those dogs would keep their yapping down!
