Our little valley is home to quite a number of barred owls; this one was sitting in a pin oak just outside our kitchen window this evening. As the nights become colder and longer, with the Pleiades wheeling overhead in a sky filled with shimmering stars, the owls begin hooting back and forth; whether they are staking out territory, or just lonely in the dark of a misty winter night, I do not know.

Great Photo!!!
Love the gardens!
Great shot, I like owls very much. And you did the photo in your own garden, wow!!!
How great to get a photo of an owl! I never see them, but sometimes, in the middle of the night, I hear them.
There are several that nest right here at the head of the valley, and they really can get into hootfests some evenings!
