  3. Gosh, they look paradise to me! How beautiful! I share your passion for nature Ma'am Eileen!

    Is the Owl real? Isn't she gorgeous if she is a she?

    If next time, you get her Macro, may I have the permission to copy? Just because I don't think I have ever seen an Owl in real!

    I have a retired Navy Admiral friend who collects Owl! I mean the miniature collectibles if you know what I mean.

  16. I am replying since a few are remarking at my seeing owls in the daylight. Every time I have seen an owl, it has been in the daylight. We were lucky at this time, there was a family we actually saw three owls. One adult and two juveniles. I heard their cries for food and I knew they were closeby. But the juvies stayed hidden in the leaves of the trees. We did see both of the juvies flying a few times. They are so cute!

  44. What a beautiful nature center, I would love to walk through. Great photo of the owl. I hear them sometimes during the day but they stay in the taller trees so I can't see them.

    Like you Eileen, the only time I have seen an owl is during the day or late evening.

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!
Have a great day, Eileen
