My very first actual sighting of an owl sleeping in a tree. I can’t tell you the thrill it was for me. This little darling was used to being photographed.. the experienced photographers knew he was there, and most had already taken his/her picture. “kristoff” from Gatineau, was kind enough to point him out for me .. and show me where to stand so that I could get a clear shot. I knew from previous visits that there was an owl in a tree in that area… I had seen others gathered around getting a picture, but always there were so many I just wandered off to other areas.
Yesterday was cooler, and there were less people around. Ground was still muddy (very) from the rain and the snow of the previous days. Please if you know which owl this is.. can you you leave me his/her identification below. Much appreciated.
This was another of my host birds.. this one was at my feet, we just stood looking at one another. She/he patiently waited for me to move aside. I was the intruder.
I’m including this next picture, because, these critters were everywhere, if they could have pulled on pant legs for attention they would. There are big signs all over, not to feed… I simply moved on.. but they were very persistent.
Can you guess where I’m headed as soon as I finish here…. LOL… have a good day everyone..

Great sightings! Was the owl about the size of a robin, 6-9″ long? If so, it was likely an Eastern Screech Owl. The only other owl with ‘horns’ is the Great Horned Owl, which is a large bird, almost the size of a goose.
you call the tufts “horns”.. not sure of his size cuz he didn’t budge, except to half open one eye.. just wanted to cuddle him.. he was so cute.
