Long Ear Owl

A “lifer” in birding is a bird you have not seen in your life. Today I was lucky due to a couple tips to get a Long Ear Owl in Arlington Texas. The Owl had been sitting in some heavy brush since this morning. So what the heck loaded up the gear and drove 55 minutes and found the owl. I really hope he/she stays around and I can get back over and get a clear full body shot. While I am not really a birder, I would call myself more of a raptor. I only need to photograph a Saw Whet Owl and a Great Grey Owl to have all the owls of North America.

It was really nice to get back into the field and experience the chase again.
