I'm an avid birder and nature photographer wishing to share some of my sightings & images taken while out in the "wilds" of Cape Ann and surrounding New England countryside. More images can be found on my web site at New England Birds Plus Enjoy, Phil Brown

Owly Weekend - March 08, 2011

Stops at several locations around the north shore this weekend turned up 3 species of owl with one sitting on the nest already.

You can just make out the ears and face of this Great-horned Owl as she sits incubating her eggs in this heron rookery in North Andover along Bradford St.

A tip from Sean Riley, thanks Sean!, found this red morph Screech Owl sitting in a broken snag in Topsfield.
and lastly the Saw-whet Owl roosting at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary was seen again. These cute little owls will start nesting very soon as well.
