More owls…

More owls… This one kinda for Leah again after she missed seeing this crew last nite while out playing a quick 6 and a bit… Took the kids out thru K-Country and into Banff yesterday looking for whatever. However, in almost 500km of travel, we saw 2 mule deer and a coyote – honestly we could have seen more doing a 10 mile radius around Okotoks!!

This one was sitting in the long grass at the edge of the pond behind the back fence a week or so ago while one of its siblings or one of its parents sat in the tree above. They’ve been VERY busy around the yard the last few weeks – even leaving parts of a muskrat pelt under our mountain ash for us one morning.

The evening light was wonderful, but was unfortunately at their backs and behind a stand of trees, so it didn’t do the scene justice at all in this setting. Still, kinda cool to have this crew back again this year after they nested in a different area last year. And, thankfully, so far this year the carnage has been kept to a minimum….
