Barred Owl :iconowlplz:
My most memorable experience with a wild creature in the forest.
In this photo she is looking down and listening for mice under the snow
As I searched for chickadees and squirrels there she was sitting on a branch
no more then six feet above me, she did not seem to mind me at all, I spent
almost 2 hours with her until my fingers could no longer move !
It was around -20Celsius that day.
Huntsville Ontario Canada

Beautiful! I read your description about listening for mice,...But it almost looks like she looks a bit sad. (owls don't probably feel sadness) But you captured a memorable scene. Worship

I could say everyone had forest behind their properties and lots of wildlife
I really miss that place ! Now I live in a town with all houses very close together
