Eastern Screech Owl at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center on November 14, 2018

I decided to make a run up to the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center this morning in search for any owl species. Walking a trail there I spotted this beautiful gray morph sound a sleep. It was a chilly 12 degrees when I left for birding but with full sun and no wind, it was a very pleasant day to be out. First owl of the season for me, it was nice to see one again. Images were taken on November 14, 2018.

    Nice spotting and photography, Jim! I probably would have walked past without seeing this owl which blends into the tree bark so well.

    Oh my, stunning and precious. Could be a watercolor, maybe a collage created from bark. Neither. This is Jim capturing the wild in authentic clothing. Most of us would walk right past this little treasure. You’re a great teacher, Jim!
