My Barred Owl at Tryon Creek State Park, Portland Oregon. May 2011
I have put together a little owl fest in celebration of me spotting my very first owl in the wild! If you have been following my blog you may remember that my new years resolution in 2008 was to see an owl in the wild...which did not happen until 2009...and that owl was spotted by my friend. This cute barred owl...was spotted by me (!) about 30 feet off of a trail at Tryon Creek State Park, silently watching hikers go by. It was 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
