Just owls

The owls are my post for Mosaic Monday to see more wonderul mosaics go and
visit Mary at :  Little Red House

Thanks to Mary for hosting the fun meme called Mosaic Monday.


These are owls I have seen during birding trips and some seen while on my fireroad walks near my house. One Barred owl was seen in Washington State and looks a lot different than the Barred owls I see here in my woods. During one of my early morning fireroad walks I came across two owlets begging for food from the adult Barred owl. I could hear two owlets but I could only see one of them sitting in a tree. The other owlet must have been on the ground. I think the owlets are just adorable. The Screech owl was actually being held by a ranger in Shenandoah, the rest were all free and wild and OH so cool looking. I love owls and I thought it would be fun to make mosaic with my owl photos.


In this mosaic, I have the Barred owlet, Long eared owl, adult Barred owl, Snowy Owl center, botton row is Barred owl, Screech Owl,  Snowy Owl and the Washington State Barred owl.




Top two fireroad Barred owl, botton left Washington State Barred and the fireroad Barred owlet.



Snowy Owl seen on Maryland beach  last January. 2009



These are my Camera Critters and to see more cute and wonderful critters go and visit Misty Dawn's Camera Critters




I hope you enjoy my owls and mosiac, thanks for stopping by.

  4. I love owls!! I have never seen that many wonderful photos of them ! We have owls here in the woods next to our house, but I have yet to capture any of them on a photo! Great post, and your mosaics were lovely!

  5. wonderful mosaics - owls we have to take when they come along - not the sort of bird we can usually go out and see just because we want to - love the snowy - where did you see him?

  6. I love your owls. I have never seen too many. I have seen a Burrowing Owl in Eastern Washington. Actually a whole family of them.. But that is all.
    Great collages.

    The Eagles are easy to photograph and you can get quite close because they are not afraid. MB

  8. Hello Eileen
    Very rarely see owls here and the one time I did in broad daylight - didn't have a camera with me!
    I really enjoyed your mosaics, they are such mysterious birds.

  9. Eileen: Just beautiful, I haven;t seen them in the wild for a long time.

  10. Beautiful mosaics. I've only ever seen owls flying at night, other than in bird sanctuaries of course, and heard them calling at twilight.

  11. Very Pretty!

  12. Beautiful owls and I love the mosaics that you did! I have never done that before so it encourages me to try something like that sometime.

  13. Those are fabulous shots of the owls. We don't see them much where I am so this is a treat.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am amazed by all of your owl photos! I hear Great Horned owls and screech owls at night, but I can't see them.

    ReplyDelete
  15. We often hear a great horned owl in the neighborhood...but it looks like you have made friends with them all. Owls have a mistique to them and are bold but quiet explorers of Nature. Nice Collages Eileen. It was fun looking into your world.

  16. The Washington state Barred Owl is gorgeous -- although I think all Barred Owls are gorgeous. Barred Owls live on our farm and often hear they calling and occasionally get a good look at one.

  20. These are ALL such great shots; I especially like the fire road Barred owls, tho...

    You are very lucky to have the experience so close. I have never seen one in the wild.

    ReplyDelete
  22. How lucky to have seen so many. They are interesting birds. Twit twoo.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Usually it is not easy to spot them..

    ..but you have photographed so many..amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Truly wonderful photos -- I mean that! I don't think I've ever seen an owl in person. You must be looking in all the right places. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Terrific shots!
    I love that one where the owl seems to be looking around the tree at you.
    They have wonderful eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great shots of the owls! They are fascinating birds, butI have not spotted any around here.

    ReplyDelete

    thanks for the visit

    ReplyDelete
  28. Fantastic photos dear Eileen! I've never seen an owl in reallife :-( They are very impressive birds. Have a beautiful Sunday! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful job with the mosaics Eileen! How did you make those? The top one is my favorite, very well placed images, it reminds me of a stained glass window.

    The Snowy Owl is my favorite owl of your collection and I hope to see one someday.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very nice mosaics. I think the snowy owl is extra beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What awesome shots of owls. We have only one native owl in New Zealand and it's quite rare to see one. Sometimes we hear them calling at night. The morepork has a very distinctive sound.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Beautiful, beautiful, owls are such photogenic birds.

    ReplyDelete
  33. How very wonderful to see, from the so-called "home" of the owl Athens, Greece.

    Yet it is mostly owls out of stone or on the back of a coin one does see - hence, one can only be grateful to be allowed to see your great photography.

    Please have a wonderful start into the new week.

  34. OMG, these are all beautiful! Never seen snowy owls either! You put them all these lovelies pretty mosaic!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I enjoyed all your owls, but especially the snowy owls at the beach! How cool is that, owls at the beach? Great mosaics!

    ReplyDelete
  40. How hard it it to photograph an owl? They are so nocturnal that unless you are out just before sunset or early sunrise in my area they are almost impossible to see. Love your pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This was a very nice post. I rarely see owls and this was super neat so see them through your camera.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't think I have ever seen an owl in real life! This is a great post! Thanks SO MUCH for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh my, I need to hang out with you! I've seen an owl, from a distance, maybe once, that's it! I was thinking about going down to Plum Island, MA because there are Snowy Owls there. Chances are I'd never see it though.

    Wonderful mosaics!

  45. Okay in all honesty I am so envious of you for seeing these beautiful raptors in their natural habitat. I've only seen some at a raptor center in Vermont we had the opportunity to visit. Your images are breathtakingly beautiful. Kudos! ~Jeanne

  50. Hi Eileen, I was just down in Skagit Valley and the Tulip foliage is about 2-3inches out of the ground so by mid March the Valley will be covered with Tulips of all colors. So beautiful. Skagit Valley is one of the nations largest grower of Tulip bulbs in the nation if not the world. MB

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
