Obsession - The Owl

I tried so many times last year to write a poem about our owl. Now that he's back, I'm again obsessed with him. Here's a good shot of his back.

Our home is at the top of a hill, so I imagine the owl has a pretty good view of even the slightest creature scurrying about. Once more, the photo does not do him justice. My best guess is that he is about a foot-and-a-half tall. His wingspan is breathtaking.

My best guess is that you have a Barred owl, the most likely to be seen in daytime around these parts. It's really cool that you have one on your property! Let me know if you get any more photos.

It's definitely a Barred owl. I can tell by its hoot. Will definitely post more photos as he allows me to take them =)
