The Owl Barn. Fence had blown down. When we talked to the neighbor he asked us, "Had we seen the owl?" He said he saw two of them on top of The Owl Box the night before when he checked on his dogs.
So we connected the live feed to our TV. Walla!
Then I took some night shots. This is McGee the male Barn Owl. Notice he has a white face and chest.
This is Molly the now famous Barn Owl. Notice she is much darker in the face and chest plus she has spots on her chest.
Molly has now laid 6 eggs. We hope to have owlets soon. You can watch live. We have both night and daytime viewing.
This is McGee coming in for a visit, I captured this photo by shooting remotely while watching Molly's actions inside on the TV. I could not see McGee coming in because it was pitch black outside. I just guessed and took 3 photos the other 2 did not show McGee. It helps to be lucky.
Close up of The Owl Box and the little camera housing outside The Owl Box. You can also get a good view of the owl opening where they come and go. When we first started taking photos the owls would come and go and leave the box empty for periods of time.
Flowers - daffodils just below and to the left of The Owl Box. The fencing that blew down has been repaired and we don't have to worry about the neighbors dogs but if you listen closely you can sometimes hear them when we are live streaming.
This is a Great Horned Owl. I took this photo in Arizona outside of Tucson.
This was one of those lucky shots. I photographed this Great Horned Owl just as it was taking off.
The Great Horned Owl is much larger than the Barn Owls we have in our backyard. I have added these photos just because they are some of my best photos of Owls.
Roark, the Redshoulder Hawk after the rain.
Roark visits our backyard almost daily looking for grubs...he finds lots to eat.
This is Gary, the Cooper's Hawk he also visits our backyard looking for small birds.
Gary is off to catch a bird. Yes, he finds those also in our backyard. It is nature's way.
We also have hummingbirs up to 50 at a time.
These hummingbird photos were taken using high speed flash.
This is an Allen, we only get one or two a year.
All these photos were taken in our backyard. It is our entertainment world.
