Just a quick post about something exciting that happened today.

We had an unexpected, yet very exciting visitor : A barn owl!  I knew we had them here, but had never seen one.  This lovely bird stayed with us for about 1h.

At about 3/4 of the time s/he was sleeping quite nicely. Seemed very content.

Look at the talons on this bird.  Probably doing a good job eating mice/rats in the area.  Good to have this bird around 🙂

At one point it woke up and realized we were looking. The bird looked right back at me.

Right before its graceful departure!

So that’s it!  I was glued to the window the whole time taking pictures and marveling at this beautiful bird.  I was maybe +-6ft away so it was a privilege to be able to observe from so close for an extended period of time. 🙂
