Barred Owl


barred owl I spotted yesterday. I'm not sure what I want to do today. The list of things I ought to do is fairly intimidating...

Is it Strix varia? We don't have that in Europe but Strix uralensis is a very similar species. I have never seen one in the nature, how cool that you were able to take a photograph of your Strix! They are huge and so beautiful.

it is strix varia, but I want to see your Strix uralensis!

I always feel very lucky when I see an owl. I once saved a barred owl, touched it and everything.
