The Owl Dan Saw on his Way to Work this Moring

Eastern Screech Owl in Pine Tree

I was walking back from lunch, almost at work, when I heard a commotion up in the tree by the ten mile river, actually the outlet of the old turbine chase, I looked up expecting to see a squirrel, saw a brown shape, so I took a closer look, and saw it was an owl roosting in the pine tree about teen feet up with its feathers all puffed up.

It was cold, so I think it was just trying to stay warm.  I snapped a few pictures with my phone, here is the cropped version so it’s easier to see the owl.

It’s probably an Eastern Screech owl, but it’s not a very good picture.

  1. Nice sighting! It looks like a long-eared owl to my family. We had one visit our tree a couple of years ago. They like to sit high up in evergreens in quiet areas.

    Peace and Laughter!

  2. It’s remarkable to me how different even our trees are, from your coast to here. Your picture evokes a cold, misty morning to me… the owl is just icing on the cake! Thanks for sharing.
