They are the cutest things.Had some friends ( sadly no longer friendly with them) who ran a banding station here at the farm for a few years, so I know they come through here.I should take time and go looking for them.
Very nice picture. Everything about it is very good. I am torn, however, about whether it would be an improvement to show the bird's entire tail. That would necessitate a different crop, though, and move the branch on which the owl perches higher into the picture. Not sure if that will destroy the balance of the picture?
