    How on earth did you find that owl?

  2. Meegan Reid Says:

    I’ll let you in on a little secret, if my cutline says, “… in Brownsville…” it was almost always taken in my yard. ;)

    We were sitting on our deck when we heard a Stellar Jay just going crazy in the trees behind our house and I walked over and looked up and it was just tormenting that owl. For a good hour they chased each other around the trees that line our yard. Unfortunately, it was early evening and too dark and woodsy to get anything usable of the actual chase, hence the “still” shot of the owl plotting his next move. Cool thing is on a few of the shots you can see an orange band on the owl’s leg which makes me think he might be a rehabilitated owl.

  3. Lea Says:

    Ah. What an exciting thing to see!

    I broke away from my family Sunday morning to see what wildlife I could find. Lots of seagulls and crows, a couple herons, fish, crabs, seastars, a chickadee… And then, an otter! Too bad I was driving and it was running across the street just to disappear into the shrubbery. Then an hour later, 4 deer! But again, I was driving and they were in someone’s front yard. So I wasn’t very successful on this morning trip, but I had a good time. Can’t wait to try again!

  4. Connie B Says:

    Question – do zoo animals and domestic camels count as “wildlife”?

  5. Lea Says:

    Haha! I thought about that camel near manchester! :)
    I even debated going to the zoo when my quest to find something other than seaguls and crows failed.
