Backyard Visitor

Eliza Waters

IMG_7869I was surprised and delighted to see this handsome fellow, a Great Horned Owl, in our backyard today.  They aren’t very common in our woods to my knowledge. In the twenty-seven years that I’ve lived here, I’ve seen only one. More often, I hear and occasionally see, Barred Owls.

I heard him first a few weeks ago, hooting down towards the river and yesterday, I was alerted to his presence by several crows mobbing him perched in the brush across the river. No crows in sight today, so we had a quiet visit before he flew off into the woods.
