We have known since we bought the house, that there were owls around. I frantically flagged down Hubs when I was on the phone being intereviewed and saw one land on a dead tree across the backyard, so that we could get some pictures. We hear them at night calling to one another and occasioanlly, we hear them in the morning when we take the dog out. There is two, maybe three nearby.
Since we have been at home for weeks, I have found myself going for walks during the naptime. On this particular day, the sun was shining and I was headed towards the mailbox when I heard an owl hoot. It was close. I spun on my heels, ran inside and grabbed my camera. I told Hubs to come with me and help me find this owl.
We did. He spotted it first and I tried to be as quiet as possible (on a bed of dried leaves) to get some photos of the sleeping owl. Eveneturally he got annoyed by me and flew justa few trees away. We didn’t follow up but smiled at the fact that we could see him and watch him for a few minutes.
