I have had my first encounter here with a Great Horned Owl, who surprised me flying off a low perch right over my head, then landing through the woods about 50 yards away. I could barely see him with no clear shot with my camera to get a good picture--but I did manage a few shots so that you can at least make out that it is an owl.
Today(April 13), I did get an interesting shot of one of our Osprey residents--he was perched in a tree on the back pond with what appeared to be the remains of a fairly large bass which he was eating. These guys are super fishermen and are the envy of all our two-legged anglers!! In the pics below, you can see the fish pinned to the limb under his right foot.
I keep hoping for the warblers to come through---maybe in the next couple of weeks---See pics below from my recent walks----
