MOM. YOU HAVE TO COME AND SEE THIS! THERE'S AN OWL UP AT THE BARN!
What? An owl?
I put on my stuff and grabbed my camera.....thinking that it would probably be gone by the time I got out there!
It was so small! It was sitting up in the window above the door....see it?
And it just kept watching us....and we all kept watching it. Enthralled.
I was a little intimidated by it. I know so little about owls! I was afraid that it might...at any minute...swoop down and attack us! Those claws look so nasty! Sophie wanted to go into the barn and get on with her chores but I said not to disturb it.
After a little bit of googling we learned that it's a screech owl.
A beautiful visitor.
