Another encounter with The Owl!!

The Sheep went exploring around The Farm today. They were taking advantage of the warmish weather (it got up to about 47 today) and the dryish ground (it rained a little bit this morning). And while they were out the saw The Owl again. Upon some further research they decided that this is NOT a Barn Owl, but a Barred Owl. His face looks like the inside of a walnut. Therefore, The Sheep are calling him "Wally".

I apologize for this shaky video, but it's the best we could get. Wally is in the crux of the Walnut Tree on the right. If you look closely you can see him shaking (The Sheep think he was cold)

I made this photo as large as I could because if you look REALLY closely, you'll wee just over the horizon and just right of dead center, The Owl! He is flying over the valley below and The Sheep are watching him hunt, grateful that He is not after Them!!! I hope you are able to see Him, He is pretty far away!




The Sheep continued their exploring as the sun was setting. It sure seemed to go down fast!!!




 

It got to the point that The Sheep weren't even visible in the photo, but The Moon was out - in between clouds covering it.

All in all, it is a good night to be A Sheep!!!
