Long-eared Owl in Wisconsin on December 23, 2021

One of my birding stops today produced a surprise Long-eared Owl perched 5 feet off the ground. It remained still for about 5 minutes, was not even looking at me, I was very quiet, it must have been eyeing up some food. After about 5 minutes passed, it turned its head and looked at me and I took a few shots. It was a cloudy day with some wind, cold temps around 30 degrees. Images were taken on December 23, 2021.

When I found the Long-eared Owl…it remained looking in that direction for about 5 minutes…

Another shot of when I came upon this owl…
