Pat Had a Visitor!

This gorgeous photo came courtesy of Bob and Pat Balsom with the following e-mail:

Pat came home to a large bird under one of our feeders that flew up into the Canadian Hemlock by our porch. He sat, quite unimpressed by her, for a couple of hours giving her the opportunity to take some great pictures. Attached is one of the best of the Barred Owl that graced our tree.


Dear Bob and Pat,

I am jealous! I can't remember the last time I saw a barred owl in the daytime, never mind one that was sitting in a tree in my own yard.
