Another reason we love our property - the unique wildlife that is so kind to visit us. We've had this Barred Owl (Strix varia) and Great Gray Owl (Strix nebulosa) in our back trees for the last couple of weeks. My shots are of the Barred Owl perched on the branch, but Katie later got shots of the Great Gray Owl in flight. 
Yesterday, while I didn't have my camera or phone on me, the Great Gray was perched in a tree right beside our trail. It allowed me to get within 10 feet of the tree and was about 15 feet up in the branches. I was able to watch it, fascinated, for 1-2 minutes before it took flight and was but a whisper on the wind, a silent killer. 
According to our bird book, while outweighed by both the Great Horned and Snowy Owls, it is the largest North American owl in terms of wingspan. So impressive to see up close and personal in the wild!
