Your Owl is very nice too. I have never seen it.

It is a Barred Owl (Strix varia) It is found only in the Americas. Your owl we have here also. But they are not found in my neighborhood. I am glad you liked this one of many of our native owls.

Beautiful plumage Liam but the eyes looks sad. Maybe the owl doesn't like the winter?

Very nice capture as always!

Have a good night

Like the sunlight on his feathers,and Silvy is right;the owl looks sad!

Have a good day,

Maybe he is sad because he is still going to school;>))

Another fantastic shot! I love owls.

Ah Liam. They don't get much better than this unless it's one of your others. Owls hold a fascination for me too and I once had an uncle who collected anything and everything owl. I see you're making great use of the great lens on that SX20IS. The original of this must be fantastic. We like the way you have selected the upper half of the bird for presentation Ma & Pa Moose

Thank you, Kyle!

Hello, Silvy. He was enjoying the day, it is winter but it is not cold. This is Georgia. ;-)

Thanks, Joke. I think it's because he does not want to do this show during the day when he wants to sleep. :)

LOL Joyfotos. I think you noticed it was in Georgia Southern University! It's the school my brother goes to. Thanks.

Thank you, Ma&Pa Moose. I really like owls too. I once had an Eastern Screech-Owl red morph nest in Kyle's kestrel box. And one time Kyle and I saw a Great Horned Owl in our backyard. So you uncle was a real Owl-dude huh? :) Well, I am loving the SX20IS, this was the first time I used it at the raptor center. It really paid off when taking pictures of the wild (some not wild) ducks there. I'll upload more photos soon. Thank you once again for the comment!

Thank you, John.

Thanks, Cleber. It's good to see you commenting!

Thank you, Admin. I will drop by your gallery in a few minutes!

Greetings from Augusta, Georgia!

Beautiful Photo Liam. I wonder why it was not asleep as it was mid afternoon.Such a beautiful feathers and markings.Y*. Kind Regards,David

((Ospr3y)) on March 2, 2010

It wants to sleep, Silvy.

Thanks, Hruby!

Thank you, Tonia!

It was not asleep because it had a flight show to do. It is an imprint owl, meaning it's captive and the first being it saw was a human, making the human its "mother". Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting
