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

Screech Owl 02-03-12

February 03, 2012

The Screech Owl made another appearance in the box in the yard this afternoon. This 1st image below was taken around 3pm


A brief video taken from a few different perspectives.


The next 3 were shot between 5 and 5:30 with much less available light as the day came to a close.


I walked around to the front of the box for the next two. The Owl spent a fair amount of time watching something in the distance, I never saw what it was.


The last shot was 15 minutes prior to the owls leaving the box. Not much light with a shutter speed of 1/25 of a second but a sturdy tripod and a bit of sharpening in Photoshop helped loads.
