Who's watching hoooooooo

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Seen at a local exhibition of owls, in support of their protection. This little beauty, had been recently nursed back from ill health. I think it's a Tegmalm's Owl but it also has the look of a young Barn Owl to me, Perhaps someone can put me right here. In actual fact, besides being a fine bird, it is also a very interesting picture. My other owl

Ania, Tjeert, A.Ypeij and Reza, welcome to my gallery. It is always good to see new visitors here, especially those that enjoy my work. 'Lapland Owl' eh, Tjeert, I have never heard it called that before. My research called it a Tegmalm's Owl over here in the UK. Thank you, all for these comments and awards. Please call again.

Odeveld, my friend, nice to see you again and I am very happy that you are indeed watching my full gallery. Thanks for the like.

Best wishes from the UK, Herb

Had to come back and like this one Herb, after I spotted it in the comments.

It has been too many years since I last looked at it at full resolution!
