A Winter Hoot!

A perfect way to end the day ... spotting a regal Great Horned Owl!  Judging by the size, my guess is this is a female ... perhaps 'Olive's' Mama!  The boys and I spotted this beautiful bird of prey on our way home from hockey practice.  She was soaking up the sun's final rays of this February day!  


  1. Wow, what a beautiful day! It looks like the owl is part of the tree.

    1. Isn't she a beauty? It is AMAZING how they blend into their environment! When we released Olive during the fall, her feathers were so rusty-brown and mid-winter, very grey, dull-brown! An animals ability to camouflage into its surroundings is truly remarkable!
