In the past few weeks I have been able to see and photograph a couple of birds I really like but are rather elusive. For this one I got lucky because a friend of mine has them in her yard every year for the past few years. She is quite lucky to be able to observe them and they must know it is a safe place to be because they come back each year. I captured this image of a young Barred owl and I liked the blank tree space in this so I did not crop it. The young ones are so fluffy and cute.
