Barred and Long-eared Owls in the falling snow in Wisconsin on March 13, 2017

With a day of falling snow, it was be a great day to check out a few owls. I checked out a few spots with a little luck. The Barred Owl was hunkered down when found, it never moved. The Long-eared Owls sat tight as well. With the snow falling on and off during the day, it made for a winter wonderland atmosphere out in the woods. Images were taken on March 13, 2017

The Barred Owl blends right in, how exciting!

    Great shots! I’ve never seen a long earred in the wild. How do you know where to look for them?

    Remarkable shots with the snow as the setting. You are a very brave man to go on the roads with all the snow we had! Amazing you were able to get the incredible close-ups of the Long-eared Owls without flushing them. Thanks again for sharing your work.

  5. These photos are amazing. I would love to spot an owl in the wild. We see eagles here often, but these owls are stunning. Congratulations!

    Wow Jim, I LOVE these photos!! You have really captured the essence of these wonderful and interesting birds. Great work.

    We have seen our Screech Owl for the past few days and even watched a Northern Cardinal fly into the nest box and never come back out again!!
