A Few Owls More

So, these pictures are from earlier in the year and not particularly great in quality.  I just find them funny.  I was in the process of trimming (hacking the crap out of) a holly tree/bush/monstrosity, when I noticed movement.  It took several minutes for me to figure out what I was looking at.  These are screech owls I believe.  I don’t know a whole lot about owls, but the “expressions” of these two are fantastic.  Notice the shocked look of one and the squinty, WTF of the other.  The one at the top continued to squint at me like it was Clint Eastwood the closer I got. I backed off.  I left the holly alone after that.  There was a nest nearby built by some other bird that they were using.  IMG_5239-002IMG_5225-003IMG_5233-005
