It was amazing watching this Barred Owl hunt. She was perched on the lower limbs of a pine tree for a while. She then moved to the top of a birdhouse, presumably listening for rodents moving under the snow as they fed on seeds fallen from the birdhouse. I sat on the ground (from a distance) waiting for her to make her move. Finally she did but unfortunately for her she came up empty handed. She then moved back to the top of the birdhouse  and we left her to continue her hunt. I hope her next attempt was successful.

Der Kormoran

Ein fleißiger Fisch Jäger der von den meisten Anglern nicht gemocht wird. 
Durch seinen großen Hunger wurde er in den 1920 praktisch ausgerottet.
Die ersten Brutkolonien erst 1947 in Niedersachsen wieder angesiedelt.

Momentan gibt es in Deutschland ca. 24.000 Brutpaare und in Westeuropa ca. 450.000 Brutpaare.

Birkenzeisig

Der Birkenzeisig, früher auch Leinfink genannt, ist ein Singvogel aus der Unterfamilie der Stieglitz artigen in der Familie der Finken.

Der Birkenzeising ist in Europa hauptsächlich in Island, Irland und Skandinavien zu Hause, aber auch im Alpenraum anzutreffen.
Im Winter kommen sie aus dem Norden nach Mitteleuropa.
Er liebt Birken-,Lärchen-.Erlen und Nadelwälder. Man trifft ihn auch in Parkanlagen und Gärten.

Der Bestand in Deutschland wird auf 8500 bis 14000 Brutpaare geschätzt.

This is from my first Snowy Owl sighting. It was so exciting to turn the corner towards the beach and see her perched up on the dune. After the sun set I didn't want to leave. People were packing up but I just wanted to watch her a little longer. I took a few more shots and my shutter speed was down to 1/10 so I wasn't expecting much but I like this one. I hope you do, too.
(Different day, different dune, different owl than prior dusk dune post.)

Barred Owl hanging out on top of a bird feeder. She spent quite a while there and made one unsuccessful attempt at a catch. Her attempt was not on a bird (they all scattered when she arrived on the scene) but on a rodent under the snow who was likely feeding on seeds that had fallen to the ground. I'm sure she eventually scored but we didn't hang out after the first attempt. (Taken at 6:54pm so light was low and shutter speed slow. 🙈)

Northern Hawk Owls have stiff feathers, unlike those of nocturnal owl species, so their flight is not completely silent. They can detect prey by sight at a distance of up to 800 meters (half a mile) away. It can also find and seize prey under a foot of snow. I witnessed this when this bird swooped down from a high perch, glided across the road between a group of observers, and to the edge of a treeline to catch its prey. The attempt was unsuccessful but it was truly impressive to watch it attack from that far away. (This is the still image companion to the video in my prior post--check it out!)

Short-eared Owl flying towards the setting sun. Most of the SEO I've seen have been a lighter variation so I was pleased when this darker variation flew close by. I did a little reading to find out the difference between the two color variations but have not come up with anything definitive. If you know whether it is age, gender, region or simply differences within the species, please comment. Oh..and have an awesome weekend!

Swan in the Mist...... Boiling Springs, PA, USA
I am always a little uncomfortable cutting off the subject, but i think it works here.  The light spots in the background come from breaking the rule and shooting into the sun. .

I spent yesterday walking through dense stands of pines looking for Long-eared Owls and scouting new locations for ducks. I struck out on all counts and came home with only 1 'keeper' image with this Red-shouldered Hawk. (I'm convinced there was at least one LEO looking down on me in those pines as I walked right under, unaware of its presence. 🙄)

Northern Harrier on the hunt after sunset. This was one of those evenings when the sky was on fire and instead of leaving I decided to stay and enjoy the rest of it as it faded.The Harrier came in and around from my left and I took a few shots the whole time thinking 'why am I doing this' because the light was so low...but the sky so amazing.  After I downloaded my images from the day this frame stood out and it grew on me so, love it or hate it, here I am sharing it with you. Have an awesome weekend!

Short-eared Owl struggling against a gust of wind. I was walking off the field the other evening when I saw this owl come in and land off to my right. I set everything back down to try for a few more images even though the light was gone. My shutter speed was slow but I think I managed a few fun images when the wind picked up and ruffled her feathers a bit. ⏩See today's story for the subsequent frames. 😊

I spent a few hours in a field on a really cold and windy day hoping to see some Short-eared Owls. It is funny how you forget how cold you are when they show up and when it is over you just can't wait to do it again.

Barred Owl in the last light of the day. This image was taken from my vehicle quite a distance from the owl. Focal length was 560mm on a crop sensor body (896mm equivalent) and the image is also cropped. I visit this location quite often hoping to get a look. Sometimes I only hear them calling, occasionally I get a look at them, and most of the time neither happens. When I do get a good look at them it feel like a gift. There are times when I get a few shots in then put the camera down and just watch. Those are the moments that stick with me.

I don't know about you but I think this Red-shouldered Hawk is sexy and judging by that pose, he/she knows it. I don't run into these stunners often enough so it is always a treat when I do and getting a look like this is a bonus. Stay warm! 😨

I decided to share something a little different today with this Short-eared Owl that I watched fly in and land on the fence ahead of me. As much as I love a near frame-filling look at these beauties, I also enjoy a wider angle view of the overall scene. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. 🤔

I decided to share something a little different today with this Short-eared Owl that I watched fly in and land on the fence ahead of me. As much as I love a near frame-filling look at these beauties, I also enjoy a wider angle view of the overall scene. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. 🤔 . . . . . . #shortearedowl  #nanpapix  #best_bird_shots  #feather_perfection  #bb_of_ig  #canonbringit  #teamcanon  #wild_planet_hub  #nature_brilliance  #elite_raptors  #elite_owls  #onlyowls  #shots_of_animals  #bd_pro  #bird_brilliance  #ethicalowlphoto  #birds_captures  #birds_adored  #eye_spy_birds  #featured_wildlife  #show_us_nature  #your_best_birds  #feather_features  #pocket_birds  #kings_birds_  #bns_birds  #ip_birds  #nuts_about_birds  #inspirenaturenow 
Short-eared Owl cruising over the tall grass at sunset. I've really been enjoying my time observing these beautiful creatures. One minute they are nowhere to be seen and the next there are six and they are sparring with one another and also the Northern Harriers that share the same hunting grounds. They seem to be especially territorial when they first come out, so much so that I never know which direction to point my lens! 🙃 I hope you don't mind if I share a few consecutive images of them as this is where I've been spending most of my time recently.

I spent the past few days set up in a field watching and waiting for Short-eared Owls and Northern Harriers. Temperatures have been in the teens and the wind coming across those fields really bites but the the birds did not disappoint so it was totally worth the frozen fingers and toes. This one came out just as the sunset was most intense. It warmed the owl and the dried grass in the adjacent field beautifully. I'm really looking forward to what 2018 brings. Happy New Year!
