Mottled Owl




This is probably the closest I will ever get to a wild Mottled Owl. Unfortunately, this one slammed into the window. Fortunately, it wasn't killed or hurt. It recovered for a few moments before flying away. This was the first bird I have encountered that seemed interested, and not scared of the camera lens.

What a little dear. Those eyes. Glad it was unscathed.
I'm glad also! For some reason I have always been fascinated with owls and it was such a thrill to be that close to a wild one.
