"My first photo of an owl, taken last night.
I have been wanting to see one for three years now so I'm pretty happy with this.
My dad and I went on a walk in one of our nearby forest preserves, the walk was mostly a bust and we had pretty much given up for the day. Of course it was then that we heard the call of a barred owl. It was far off so we continued walking. A couple minutes later my dad spotted a figure in a tree at the very end of the trail. Sure enough, there he was, sitting on a maple tree branch a couple hundred feet away."
Barred Owl, Strix varia
