Screech Owl...

I have gone by this tree hundreds of times over the years.  Each time I glance at this hole and think "what a great spot to see an owl"...



Each time it has been empty...



Last week I caught a glimpse of an owl's head...



I returned each day hoping to see more of the owl.  It remained elusive for a few days until finally...



I have no idea why it lost it's bashfulness, but I am glad that it did...



I was able to park about fifteen feet from the owl and zoom my lens to the maximum focal length...









I observed it for two hours before moving on.  For the last two days the owl has been absent, but a Carolina wren is interested in using the space...



Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back soon.
