March 8 2012 On our evening walk I almost stepped on this owl. It was dark, we had flashlights, and the owl was just sitting there on the trail. I ran back to the house to get my camera, when we got back to the place we had seen the owl it was gone. But not far away there it was low in a small nearby tree. It's an Eastern Screech Owl. In our woods we have also seen Great Horned Owls, and Barred Owls.
Not very good pictures but it was fun to see this owl.
