"red morph beauty"


Grimsby, CA
          

The red morph at Woodlands cemetery is looking more foxy this year - and also a little more feral. D300 w/ 500 f4 AF-S & TC-14E, ISO 320.

1/250 f7.1


1/320 f7.1


1/200 f8

Jim

Nice shoots. It looks like an Eastern Screech Owl.

Yes, she's an eastern screech owl. I'm no expert but she seems to be getting more red as she ages.

That is a beautifull owl I saw them at NC Raptor Center. I never thought anyone would see them out in the wild. Love the pictures.

They're rather uncommon in the northern part of the screech owl's range.

Thanks for sharing these excellent shots, I like that third shots detail of the beak, just like the side view.

I like the profile view of screech owls because the beak always looks a little unsharp from the front.

Yeah, I guess she's an early riser - often they don't wake up until a half hour before dusk.

I don't know whether the red mprphs seek our reddish wood, but this wood works for her.
