The Owl, our Frequent Visitor

There are a pair of owls who have been visiting our yard for the last couple of years. There is a ditch (otherwise called bayou here in SE Louisiana), which is apparently great hunting for the owls. We always know when they are in the yard as the other birds (we have a variety of feeders so there is usually alot of activity out there), all start squaking and chirping and flying into him .. quite a loud racket all geared at trying to get it to go away ...

This is one beautiful owl ... just wish our camera had a better telepfoto lense ... this one is about 30 feet from the house on the back fence.
