Halloween Visitor

Look who came to visit!

Peek-a-Whoo!

I saw this beautiful long-eared owl when I went to fill the feeders today. I was so taken aback I wondered if someone had left a stuffed toy in the tree. This sounds logical when your kids have been decorating the yard for Halloween. When I realized what I was looking at, I ran in to tell the family. We took turns taking pictures. Luckily, we have a nice zoom on our camera.

Great shots. She looks and acts like she is home. What a pleasant visitor! Hope she sticks around for a while.
Love, Dad

What excellent photos! This is SO amazing! My oldest was still up so I got to show him. What a beautiful creature - so glad you got to see him! Did you get to hear him at all? Last night, I could hear an owl down in the forest at the end of our cul-de-sac (a friend of your gorgeous specimen, perhaps?) But, alas, I didn't get to see him. Lucky you!

Happy Hoooowloween!
