For the last couple of weeks we have been hearing the familiar hooting sounds of our own personal owl. There haven’t been any replies, so guess he is a loner.
I’m not clear if this is our usual guest at this time of year, or if this is a different one. He is in the same spot in the tree, so maybe that’s his “spot”! His ear “fuzz” looks a bit different to me, and the feathers on his chest look like a different pattern. But maybe it is the time of year for change.
The Chihuahuan Ravens have been harassing him on and off all morning with their squawking, but he just blinks and suggests that they “buzz off” and leave him alone.
He seems not to mind if I make those click-y noises at him, but I’m sure he would rather get back to his nap.
What a great picture !!!!!! They used to come to my big tree .

It will be more attractive to them when the leaves get fully back on that gorgeous tree. I think it is the same fellow who comes to that exact spot in that tree several times a year.
Looks like a Great Horned – big and beautiful!

I’m pretty sure it’s the same fellow who has been hanging around here for years.
Neat to have a visitor that come each year! Nice capture of the GHO.
He’s around a lot of the time. There is one specific “Y” branch in the ash tree where he likes to hang out. I suppose it is a bit more supportive that other junctures in the tree.
He doesn’t seem to mind if I come out and jabber at him. He just looks at me and is tolerant. I don’t take pictures of him every day because they look pretty much the same each time.
